Oh wow, I am so jealous! I love these little guys and a skull is on my wish list! What an awesome find! Please consider adding this to the "Identifying Animals Through Osteology Mission!" http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8475...

They are like a wild pig with tusks but in a different family. I put up the wiki thingy and stuff below. Check'em out. They run all over town here in Tucson. I never seen a perfect full skull before till I found this one way out in a canyon.
