Moldy bark? I wouldn’t make tea of them ;).
Yum, bone tea. Yep, they are moldy bones from an ancient burial site it Malaysia.
They are the same green foliage at the bottom left of the frame growing on the bones of, I assume, the products of an open grave.
Excellent! Yes, they are bones.
No clue. Bark that has been greened with lichen? (Wild guess here 🙂 )
And a very good guess. But they are bones from an ancient burial site in Malaysia.
I would never have guessed bones 🙂
I wouldn’t have either, but I swear that’s what the guide said.
At first they looked like bones, but I guess they are bark husks???
Your hunch was right. They are bones from an ancient burial site in Malaysia.
Ok, I think you should tell us where this was taken before we try to guess :).
Malaysia. Danum Valley. But you can find these types of things in every country.
I was going to say coconut shells, but bones eh? That’s creepy cool :).
creepy cool–I like that.
No. Can you tell us?
Sure will. Bones from an ancient burial site in Danum, Malaysia.
Oh my… the Incredible Hulk has exploded!
I always look forward to your comments. Thanks for the morning chuckle.
Inane commentary is all I’m good for. I even get paid for it… 😉
Not sure I would call it inane. And good for you for getting paid for it!
I had no idea but then I cheated and read the comments. I would not have guessed bones. But now that I look closer it is pretty clear that is what they are. Don’t sign me up to be a detective …..I flunk.
You and me both. I didn’t guess either! But once I did know I could see it just like you.
I would have never thought bones. First thing that popped in my mind was the outer covering of softballs or a volleyball. I have no idea why I thought that.. 😯
I can actually see that. i didn’t think of it before, but I see where you are going.
Without looking at comments above, sure look like bones.
My biology background came through!
Yes! Great work!
Yes, its pretty clear but did they say how old they are?
I need to do some more research for you, Gilly. So far every site I’ve visited has said ancient. That’s not very clear. Will look more and let you know.
Interesting picture, TBM. On close examination it does look like bones. I liked that ladyofthecakes said 🙂
She makes me laugh all the time.
I only know they are bones from having read the other comments. People make tea from the bones? Did I read that correctly? I think I’ll stick with my Earl Grey, thank you very much. (Unless of course you tell me that tea is from the bones of a man named Earl Grey!)
I’m not sure about the tea bit. I don’t remember the guide saying that. And Earl Grey is my fave so I’m going to block out that bit about the bones. Surely there wouldn’t be any left by now.
I am having a pat on the back moment here…wait…I want to enjoy it
I did not scroll down until I made my guess…and I was right…bones
I saw the photo and instantly thought bones… skull caps and femurs would be my guess. Your comments confirmed this. So are they really just laying around, or are they in a sanctuary or some sort?
This is a site for ancient burials. You have to hike up to see them but they are kinda laying around as well. If I wasn’t with a guide I wouldn’t have known what or why they are there.
Yew! I thought they were fresh coconut remains before I read the comments! Quite interesting though, maybe write a few lines about this place one day?
I’ll do my best. And nope, not coconuts 😉
