    Hello!!!
    I'm new to this forum so if I mess up please have the kindness to let me know.

    That being said...My name is Pedro and I live in Norway.
    I'm looking to start a scrimshaw hobby so I'm in the process of buying some items.
    Yesterday I bought a lot of whale teeth that come with some other things included from an old collection.
    Here is the reason I ask for your help.
    The skull in the attachments was one the things that was in the lot.
    I think it is a Leopard Seal skull but would like to have your opinions if possible.
    Thank you
    Pedro

    The teeth and long head indicate that it is without my looking further.

    Hey Pedro,
    Awesome find!! Leopard skulls are kind of hard to come by! We had one in my old lab collection, they are really impressive.
