Partial Skull, Raccoon, Possum, Something Else?

Recommended Posts

Bone Daddy

I found this partial skull while hunting in the Peace River (Florida, Bone Valley formation). I am thinking it's either a raccoon or possum. Is there any way to tell?  I am fairly certain it is not fossilized and it's pretty fragile.

Not positive but the short face makes me think it’s some type of cat.

It's a canid, alright.  It has lost (never had) its first three premolars.  The truncated snout make me think of a pug or some other domestic dog with a pushed-in face . . . like a bulldog.
