turtle skull identification


Recommended Posts

i have been compiling an osteological analysis of this turtle skull unfortunately despite research i have no idea what species it is. due to poor cataloging when first discovered all that is known about the fossil is that it was found in Oued Zem morocco.

Have a look at THIS PDF when you get a chance.

There are some suggestions in it to research further.
