This specimen is from a juvenile member of the wild pig family (exact species unknown).This skull is partially fossilized and has two symmetrical halves that fit together. There are also three smaller bone processes that were present inside the skull. The jaw and teeth are not present. This specimen has the brain case, eye sockets, and other details. The inside of the brain case has impressions in the bone left behind by the brain - quite interesting from a visual standpoint. It measures approx. 10 inches long.

This specimen would be ideal for conservation and display.
