Mammal Skull Replicas
This section contains over seventy mammal skull replicas, exhibiting the tremendous diversity of form and function found in mammal skull replicas. Each skull type provides clues to the food preferences of each mammal. Compare the skull anatomy of herbivores, carnivores, omnivores and insectivores. Students can sort out skull replica selections into these groupings and then explain their reasoning based on tooth and jaw structure. Compare the nipping front teeth and grinding molars of omnivores such as deer with the massive gripping and crushing strength seen in bear skulls or the flesh cutting and shearing carnassial teeth seen in coyote skulls or cougar skulls.
