That friend is creepy as fuck.
What really interests me is the larger skull in #12. It's a canid - do you have wolves in your area? It's hard to tell from the still how big the thing is. Wolves' skulls are 9-11 in (~23-28 cm), which is pretty big. Interesting also is that all the teeth are missing. I would have dug around in that box to see what I could learn about the animals. Bones can tell some great stories! I have a Steller sea lion skull that I found on the beach and from the skull I can tell that it was a mature male (it has a large sagittal crest with bone spurs that would arise from fighting over mates) and that it was shot (embedded buckshot in left tympanic bulla).
I guess the skull could be from a domestic dog too, but they're not often that narrow. Flipping it over would make it more distinguishable. Coyotes are a possibility too, if they're around, but they're smaller...
