    Found this skull when I was little outside. Have never been able to ID it! Being older now I realize the lower jaw is glued on completely wrong (found it like that oddly enough)
    I know it is a rodent but with the condition of it I just can't tell what it is! Not too good at IDing yet, hope you guys can help!!
    I live in Michigan if that helps.

    It's a beaver skull missing the top 2 orange front incisors.

    Not nearly big enough, my hands are small so the size in the pictures isn't too obvious! Looked it up in the mammal skull key I found just in case and confirmed my beliefs that it wasn't a beaver, but good news is I identified it as a marmot!
    Thank you for your input!

    Good deal! In this case size does matter. Lol.

    Tamagotchi ? Do they even make those any more? :) Depending on the adhesive used you could separate the parts and re glue them properly.
