      Good for not only the mountain man's toothpick, or moonshiner's tool, but a fisherman's friend..

        I don’t know if it’s sad to say, or maybe weird, but I have handled hundreds of those.

        no, I’m not some raccoon molesting pervert. 🥴
        I used to trap when I was a kid and raccoons were a premium pelt. I wish they still were.. The Save The Worl PETA folks have no idea how much harm they’ve done by killing the fur trade. Raccoons kill and eat almost anything they find on the ground. This includes but is not limited to quail nests, Turkey nest, turtle nest, bullfrogs, whip-poor-will nests and they will also kill and eat the critters themselves. I used to sit on my back porch in the evening time and listen to Bob white quail in the pasture and the wood lot nearby. Every evening, for years. I haven’t heard a single one going on 5 years now, and I killed 40+ raccoons from my place alone last year.

        every time I get a big, mature bullfrog on my pond, he gets eaten by a coon. Duck nests are raided every spring, but I’ve had some success keeping them from my wood duck boxes. Last week while mowing, I found seven turtle nests that had been dug up and the eggs eaten, and that was just mowing a smallish (5 acre)part of my yard. A friend an I were hunting a lakebed Three weeks ago where the lake had been drawn down and on one western facing bank section about 50 yards long I counted over 20 Turtle nests that Had been robbed.

        i know they are cute, but the trash panda is the bane of my existence.

        I hope the lady raccoon doesn't mix up the stingray spine with the baculum.

        I have a walrus one.

          Yup, Oosik. They are relatively common finds when Alaska Natives look for ivory. Sometimes they were used for clubs, but they are so dense that they aren't easily carved. But tourists loved them!

          I used to have to trap shoot poison the trash pandas every calving season the coons would brake into the shed and bust into the powdered milk bags and just make one heck of a mess.

              O, no, the Raccoon Penis Post is back! Just when gotten over first round.... Tsk-tsk..... But, my love of AH kicks in my penchant for explanation, mitigation, excuse-making: the People let nothing go to waste, and this forum has nothing but appreciation for such efficiency.

              I know from prior post’s education that these made super-duper fish hooks, and have since read larger baculums often used as handles for knives and other tools, especially those of Walruses by Alaskan People. Also learned interesting tidbit: generally the larger the mammal, the smaller the baculum, e.g. tiny little bush baby’s big half-inch!

              Also know own southern roots’ tradition of not-too long ago wearing one on red ribbon enhances sexual desirability. (Tom’s got his in a pencil mug on desk; wonder what he’s enhanced!?)

                The luckiest gambler that I know wears a huge gold one on a gold chain around his neck. Claims it’s for good luck and there just might be something to it lol!
