Animal graveyard

While cleaning out the garage several months ago, I found a rabbit skull. I guess it had gotten into the garage and died there long ago. There wasn't much left of it; I almost didn't recognize it at first.

While doing some repair work on the house, my roommate found what he thought was some kind of plant growing inside the light switch. I examined it more closely and realized it was a mouse skeleton! The poor thing somehow got in between the switches and was probably electrocuted. We're lucky the house didn't burn down. The skeleton is almost perfectly preserved; you can even see the individual phalanges.
