    Any bioligists/anthropoligists/bone detectives on the site? This is the skull of a vicious, carnivorous predator; what animal is it?Smile

    Not an expert but looks like a bear... possibly Polar Bear.

    The skull is maybe 1.5 feet or so long, and it isn't a bear or badger. You have to look deeper.

    Judging by the teeth arrangement and the shape of the zygomatic arch, I'd say a seal of some kind too.

    Looks like a mustelid. I'm going to guess it's a wolverine.

    Thick skulled, predatory and small brain capacity?

    Whiterose got it.Smile It's the skull of a leaopard seal. Saw it yesterday at the penguin enclosure in the Calgary zoo; they're the main predator of the penguins. I never would have thought they'd have such a mouthful of wicked teeth.
