Can anyone ID this skull?
« on: March 24, 2020, 04:17:12 PM »
I was clearing the garden and stumbled upon a skull.  I'm hoping some of you guys can ID it for me.  The teeth look like they are pushing out old ones to be replaced.  I'm thinking it's an herbivore.

The teeth do tend to speak herbivore or possible an omnivore. Skull size is hard to judge without some kind of reference.
Your general location would help with the ID as well. The large eye sockets would tend to make me think the animal is nocturnal.

I'm in Maryland.  I'll get another pic with something for scale tomorrow.
