zoomanallen Galápagos sea lion
Galápagos sea lion commented on by zoomanallen Provincia de Galápagos, Ecuador4 years ago

Here are some useful photos.

Looking at that skull, and the long bone on the left, I doubt it is a dolphin, and definitely not a bird. It looks like a carnivore and looking at photos I think it is a sea lion.

zoomanallen Unknown spotting

Judging by the size of the specimen and the shape of the teeth, I think it's a mandible from a groundhog. and mostly complete, just missing structures on the back. Check out the photos here to see a full mandible.http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/22051-help-to-identify-jaw-bone/

Looks like a herbivore of some kind. measurements and photos of the molars would help with an ID. also there is a mission for animal bones http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8475...

I don't think there are any wild populations of goats on the islands of greece, only domestic goats and feral populations. The mountain goat usually refers to the white North American animal Oreamnos americanus and not member of the same genus as goats.

Looking at the overall shape and number of teeth I'd say you have a raccoon skull. Canids have four premolars and 3 molars, raccoons have 2 molars like this guy. Also the red fox has a more elongated skull. Hope that helps clarify. And great job cleaning, looks perfect.

This looks like the premaxillas and maxillas for a rodent, and from looking at photos I'm gonna say these match up with your other spotting, meadow vole.

It is definitely a vole, the only question is which. The good thing is you can ID from molars. From consulting my field guide I'm gonna go with meadow vole. I could only find upper tooth row drawings and photos but the meadow vole's looks the most similar.

Looks like an American Robin to me, Starlings don't have the red breast, they're glossy black with speckles.
