Skull found on the Washington State, USA shoreline. Near the city "Forks."
Two additional photos are available. I need a way to add them to this spotting.
Thank you for your feedback, Emily! I'll keep an open eye for other skull remains and post them!
I did a little more research and this could be the partial skull of a California sea lion. This was probably a sub adult or a female! If you got back to the spot you found this partial skull and walk the high water line for a mile or so in either direction you may find other bones or complete skulls! Thanks for sharing your beach find!
I believe this is a pinniped of some kind. I think it is a sea lion but not sure which specie. I'll do a little more research! Cool find!
Thank you, Cindy! Added!
This would be a great addition to the Identiflying Animals Through Osteology mission: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8475...
Hi Daniele! Thank you for the tip! I wish we could add even more photos!
Hi lightworkerpeace! As there is an upload limit of 6 pictures per spotting, what you can do with your 2 extra shots is create a composite image with them and one of the pictures in this series, then remove this picture and add the composite as the 6th picture.
