We drove into the mid-Green today, and we found something interesting.

Val and Mo both felt okay, apart from brief spells of nausea, so we were able to explore for a decent amount of time. We got out of the Jeep and walked along a dried-up river bed. There were a few scrubby bushes along the edge, but not much else. About ten minutes away from the Jeep, we found a skeleton.

The bones had been picked clean, although I don't know by what: I haven't seen any animals. The skeleton was small, a couple of feet long. Mo thought it looked like a fox, apart from the skull. The skull was almost spherical, four inches wide with three evenly spaced circular holes. The holes didn't look like eyes sockets; they were too big, and went right around the skull. We picked the skeleton up with a shovel and put it in a specimen box.

When we got back, we left the skeleton in the lab and started collecting papers on mal fauna. We'll find out what the animal is, or we'll have discovered something new.
