(It cutcouple me off lol!) –anyway, recStifftute the skeleton for display and I was trying to find out how long that would take. I was thinking wet sand would be fastest (assuming they were going to bury it in sand) but I didn’t think about how the more oxygen present the faster it will decompose, as well as allowing the heat and Sun to work on it if it’s closer to the surface. The last thing is thanks for all the info! Very interesting! And I’m so impressed at the time you took to respond to so many people and with such detail, that’s super nice of you. Thanks! p.s. a couple people mentioned the book Stiff – that book rules!
