What Can You Learn From An Animal Skull?

Animal skulls have evolved for millions of years to protect vertebrate’s brains and sensory organs.  Many of an animal’s dietary and social patterns can be deduced by examining its skull and teeth.

Your Task!

Look at the animal skulls on the page I gave you.  Use the links below to write down observations based on what you read.  You may use your journal.

  • Is the animal a Herbivore, Carnivore, or Omnivore?
  • What observations can you make about its teeth? (sharp, flat, round)
  • What do you think it's diet is made up of?
  • What type of animal do you think it is?
