Whose Eggs are These, I'm Clueless

I woke up this morning to find these eggs stuck to the glass of my 20 gallon tall tank, but i have no idea what they could be eggs from. In the tank i have:

2 Silver Mollies
20+ Jacobfreibergi Fry
3 Black Kuhli Loaches
1 Green Cory Catfish
2 Panda Garra Juvies

There are no snails or shrimp in the tank, i haven't added any of these fish recently. The most recent addition to the tank was the tiny Panda Garra about a month ago. Any help would be appreciated. I'm stumped.

The last pic is used to show how small the panda garra is if you were thinking it may be them. The are a little more than 1/2 inch.

They do look like cory eggs... Even without a mate, a female might still fill with eggs and release them, as far as I know. I know other fish will do this even without a mate present. Loach eggs are not sticky like cory eggs are.

They are not snail eggs or any shrimp that I have seen. Agree, they look like Cory eggs and if they are not fertilized, they should turn a solid white color withing the first 24 hours and possibly start to have a fungus grow on them. Corydoras aeneus lays its eggs in a similar pattern to your pictures.

Different topic, I see at least one large animal bone in the tank... have they been in long?

I would expect that it might not be a good idea to put bones in like that... but I don't know.

I could think of a few nasty situations that might arise due to marrow rotting.

JDM.... I was wondering what that was too!! There are a couple of very odd looking things in there. Something roundish to the left of it.

Yes it's an entire deer skull, it has been in there for roughly a year with no problems, i'll post a full pic of the tank.

I thought I saw an eye socket.

Certainly different. I guess if it was going to give you any problems it would have by now.
