Pike head 12" long

Pikes many sharp teeth

Head after boiling

Head stripped down

Bones from head drying
Bought a large Pike head in the market - 12" long. Boiled it and stripped the flesh off bones and dried them.  This produced many  bones some almost transparent.   The jaw is particularly interesting, it has three rows of small very sharp teeth the last row of which are hinged so they lock in to its prey.
