Im leaning towards Raccoon also. Coons are omnivores, so it would make sense based on your description of both fangs and molars, but it also could be an Armadillo.Anyways, you really shouldnt handle those skulls with your bare hands, those guys likely carry a whole host of diseases. Hope you washed your hands good after.
I think it's a raccoon too! At first I thought it could be a skunk, but I think raccoon is spot on! Consider adding this to the Osteology mission! http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8475... Maybe you will get a positive ID or other suggestions!
I agree. Thank you!
Well based on the size and description, it might be a raccoon. http://www.science-art.com/image/?id=216...
The picture is horrible, my apologies! The skull had two long fangs in the front along with some small frontal flat teeth and larger molars. The skull went home with its discoverer otherwise I'd take some more shots. The fangs and molars had us all stumped.
Do you have a picture of the teeth?
