Description:

We have been going to this beach for many (20+) years, but have never seen anything like these skulls. A number of these skulls washed up on the beach at the given location in September 2014. When we went to the location again in December 2014, there were no new ones and the old ones were severely weathered/broken up into smaller pieces. Therefore, I think the deposition of these skulls was a once-off occurrence.
