Tree Growing Around a Deer Skull... interesting find by the EBL Crew

The EBL team spends much of its time out in the field collecting data and once in a while we come across strange and unique findings. EBL'ers Martin Kastner and Zia Crytser came across one of these findings just the other day. It is a deer skull stuck in a tree and the tree has grown around it. Any ideas about how this happened?

The EBL Project hosted a National Geographic reporting writer and the finished product has been published!

In November 2018 the Ecology of Bird Loss Project hosted a reporting writer for National Geographic, Alexandra Ossola, on Guam. During the host period she attended the MTCC conference, went on a Brown Treesnake night search, attended a DOD sponsored field trip to active restoration sites, interviewed multiple stake holders on Guam, and interviewed EBL's PI Haldre Rogers (who is quoted in the article). Below is the link to the finished product in National Geographic.
