Description

I think this is a deer skull. It was in the middle of the road, the lower jaw was missing. There was still a tiny bit of flesh or rot on the skull.

It has the teeth of an herbivore.

Comments & Identifications

Thumb

More pictures would be helpful (especially if you have any of the front teeth or the teeth from the top with the skull flipped over). As far as I can guess from the hand for scale, it's probably too small for a deer.
