Factual errors[edit]

Someone added that flying squirrels are carrion eaters. That sounds quite wrong to me. Niels E (talk) 13:22, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

Carrion is carcass?[edit]

The wording that carrion is the carcass of a dead animal seems very redundant. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.238.71.162 (talk) 04:42, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

More specifically that it's a carcass that's being used as a source of food, or scavenged. 98.221.141.21 (talk) 05:56, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Charon[edit]

I was wondering if anyone knows if the ferryman's name Charon, is also a root of the modern word carrion. I understand it is considered to be from the Latin word for meat but thought the two histories of the words interesting. 165.212.191.171 (talk) 16:47, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
