I've got a rabbit head I'm not sure when to consider "done"- So far the only parts left are the teeth and the nasal area. The teeth I assumed were inedible and tossed because he ate the mandibles all around and left them, but I'm not sure about the nasal bones, which were also left. They're still moist so they aren't brittle yet. Are they soft enough to chew up or should I toss? It came from a BIG bunny, if that matters.

I considered cutting it in half or at least giving it a good shattering blow, but I wanted him to need to eat away the bone to get in there- otherwise he's just lick out the center and leave everything that needed work, haha. It took him a half day to realize that this thing was simply a much bigger head than he had seen before and had goodies inside, when I first put it down he looked at me like it was a good joke that I gave him a lump of bone with a thin muscle covering on it, now where's the actual food? He started from the throat and sort of went in a strait path toward the nose.

I tried giving mine a guinea pig head once and it was stashed. So now i give it to doggie. I do like to scrape out the smidgen of cheek meat--maybe a tiny bite's worth Haha. Probably not worth the effort. However, it is very dark meat. I figured rich in taurine.

Do I go in where the spine is to get brains(bottom of head) or do I need a good knife and hammer And split it in half? Never thought about tongues on animals except cow,goat etc... I will open up guinea pig mouth and see if it has a tongue on my next shipment. Suppose to arrive this week.
I have been feeding some big rats to my ferrets. Will have to check for tongue:)) I have been mashing their heads and getting some creamy beige stuff out. It may be brains.

@abbeytgeferret6 Brains are soft, so you can probably get them out from the back of the neck or the eye sockets. Probably be a lot messier and grosser than just letting the animal go at it with a mouth.
