Hi,
I discovered an aborted foetus in the field this morning. There are no obvious signs from the girls as to whose it was. It was approx 5inches long. Can someone tell me approx. age gestation? If I could figure out an age I could track backwards.

Thanks,

Fiona

I looked at a study done not too long ago; it seems that an average crown to rump length for a 150 day gestation is 20 cm. That's kind of close, I think.
Sorry you lost it.
