Friday mystery object #150


Apologies for the slight late running of this, my sesquicentennial Friday mystery object – I was giving a talk about mermaids last night that went on until quite late (and which had an exciting special guest), but more about that later.

I’ve been waiting to do this object for a while – it’s a favourite of mine, which is good, since it is part of my own personal collection. Any idea what it is?

As usual you can put your questions, comments and suggestions below and I’ll do my best to respond. I will also add that I will have this specimen, along with the others in my collection, at the Enlightenment Cafe this Saturday and Sunday at the Old Vic Tunnels. There may also be the special guest who appeared at my talk last night, but that is a story for later… Good luck!

  1. It doesn’t really require any dogged persistence to narrow it down to a family of 36 or so species. So, relatively small sagittal crest, shape of forehead… more v than c, I’d have said. Sooo… twice the v and hiding in the allotments opposite my house?

  2. Well, it’s a canid, with an unusually straight sloping forehead. Fairly small too. Checking the usual suspects on wikipedia’s canidae page, I would hazard a guess on C…. a……?

  3. Excellent site you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew
    of any forums that cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get feed-back from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Cheers!
