Not so much an identification question, but I got a Javelina skull recently, and noticed its mandibles are all one piece, rather than, like, deer jaws for example. Is that just a pig thing? Or maybe the seller did a super good job gluing it? Or is that an age thing :0?
The aforementioned…pig…boar…hog…oinker…skull! Got it in Texas, (central texas…slightly to the left? The city it came from is San Angelo) Obviously a suid but I was wondering if you could give me anything more specific. I’m not very good at differentiating piggish species ^^;
(I combined your two questions!) This definitely looks like a wild boar skull rather than domestic pig. Pigs are known to have well fused jaw bones even at a young age, so it’s definitely a piggy thing!
