Friday mystery object #111


This week I’ll give you one that’s probably way too easy, but it’s a fascinating specimen:

  1. Well, I thought this would be all done and dusted by this stage, having only had a quick look this morning.

    Unlikely to see because of rarity or habitat & nature of the beast?

    Actually my first thought was dog, now switching to something hounds might hunt (not foxhounds though). Wondering whether wine might be needed here?

    Ps I don’t have my glasses.

  2. I’m not going to say, as I believe I saw this very specimen out and about for the first time a couple of months ago..

  3. My first thought was tapir… but no
    (actually my first thought was: this is really cool. Between Jake’s Bones and past FMOs I’m not going to get much useful work done at all.)

    So some kind of prehistoric pig thing? its got weird ridge bits over the eye sockets. Is it broken at the front or does the nose really look like that?

    google throws up some possibilities but that’s not the point.

  4. Entelodont? Don’t think so. It doesn’t look bumpy enough.

    You have to admit the koala thing is a bit of a stumper…if it’s a marsupial my guess would be something like a Diprotodon but that is definitely not a Diprotodon.

    Shame we can’t get a good look at the teeth, either. Am I right in thinking it’s omnivorous?
