Friday mystery object #273


This week I have another mystery object from the Grant Museum of Zoology for you to have a go at identifying:

mystery273

I didn’t believe the identification that it had attached, so I’d be interested to get some other opinions to see if my lack of faith is justified. Any ideas what it might be?

As usual you can leave your suggestions in the comments section below. Have fun with it!

  1. So. I’m not being cryptic since it’s already Thursday. The teeth and horns make it seem clearly to fit in the goat-antelope group. But then, the horns are so clearly short, it would seem to indicate a a forest/scrub dweller.

    So I’m going with duiker. (Dik dik’s seem to have a pronounced “nasal stop” that possibly rules them out for me.)

    Alas there are 19-22 species of duiker among three genera, so there is no way I am going to be able to get any closer.

    And I may be wrong in any case.

  2. Oh dear. I’m sure I posted something about how wrong I was, but included a reference or url or some such. Ah well. Tomorrow we shall know…
