any idea what this is? a friend found it in their backyard. South Texas feel free to post the picture. I don’t have a size reference :( sorry about that. =]
Ahhh I wish there were more photographs of it! It’s hard for me to tell what a skull is when I can’t see it from more than one angle.
It’s upside down, so the parts of the skull I can identify most easily (the sagittal arch and the parietal complex) are hidden. It doesn’t look like that small of a skull, but from what I can see of the relationship between the auditory bullae and the zygomatic arches, it looks canid. I’m not sure if it’s too big to be a coyote skull, though.
It’s been a few years since wildlife ecology and actually handling skulls, so does anyone else have an idea?
