Ah, not to mention neighbors.

seriously though, maceration of such small skulls can be done with very little odor. just gotta know a little chemistry/biology.

Obviously it's to late now but ants can do an excellent job on small skulls. A decent ant hill will clean up the skull in about 24 hrs. I usually put it in a can with holes in the bottom to allow ants in but prevent them from carrying off small parts. This is a ruffed grouse a small colony of black ants in my backyard cleaned up in about 18 hrs.

Ah! and they did a fine job too! Nice idea.


Edit:
Having done a "few" skulls, i tend to prefer the more natural look as you have pictured JWM over the pristene white, but that's just me...
