My son and I happened up on this skull a few years ago...any ideal what it belongs to?
Some kind of pig , boar , most likely young one .
George Roof ? way older then you think. Going with George.
i agree its in the swine family
Yep, that is a porker for sure!
Farmyard pig as above. Any farms near you? The other option would be that someone home butchered a pig. I can't see in the pictures you showed but look on the bone for straight line cuts into the bone. That would be where someone used a knife on it. Your other option would be if you have free running feral pigs in the area. Not sure if you have wild boar in your area. A wild boar skull is longer than a domestic pig. The one you have is also quite young. Take a look at these two pages.
Ok thanks everyone...strange location for a pig, but anything is possible. I'm going to clean it up and see how it looks.
Domestic pig and it will have lots of grease.
Its a dead ringer for a Himalayan side gouger. Very rare.
