Last night I was hiking around Malabo Beach (CA), and I came across a well preserved animal spine (just bone as far as I could tell). I picked it up and took it home because it was cool, not really thinking of the possibility it could hold disease. Is there any chance I could have acquired rabies or any other dangerous disease by handling it? I'm a little worried. At the same time, I'm pretty sure I should be ok. It was all bone. It wasn't wet and didn't have any decaying flesh on it. What would you say?
