    At home here we have all form of rodents doing it. From mice to porcupines.
    Plenty of carnivores eating the raw ones obviously.
    It is obviously a concentrated source of minerals.

    I have not seen pictures of Elephants actually gnawing on the bones, but moving them around and sorting/touching/playing with other Elephant bones.
