If you’re squeamish: err, hell-o-o, why are you here?

The major disadvantage is that most of us can only do boiling indoors: I’m not fond of filling my house with the stench of boiling cadavers, nor are most people I know.

Stig Walsh once introduced me to the wonders of microwaving.

On a few occasions I’ve soaked carcasses in water: if enough time goes by, all the soft tissues fall away, and clean bones are the result.

However, this can be a very disgusting and pungent technique, you are generally constrained to small dead things, and algae can stain or even ruin the bones entirely.

A while ago it occurred to me that – so long as flies and burying beetles can get in and out of a box containing a carcass – then, that should get the dirty work done.

So I put a corpse (a slow-worm) in a small plastic tub, broke some small holes in the top, and left it alone for a few months. The insects got in, ate all the soft tissues, pupated, and left, leaving behind only bare bones and their empty pupal cases.

Device manufacturers may have different lists of supported operating systems.

Anyway, Stig and I once microwaved a dead cat and the results were outstanding.
