Snake bones (Hermina Borgerink)

Good morning Histonetters,

A friend of mine related the following and asked me if I knew anything
about this phenomenon.  I replied to her that I did not, but that I knew
where to go to find an answer!  One of her colleagues decalcified some
snake bones in commercial acid decal recently.  The decal solution
bubbled when the tissues were placed inside, and the container actually
bulged.  She wonders if there is something different about smake bones
that might cause this.  Anyone........?

Thanks in advance.
