Marmot Skull Sketch

May 25, 2015 § Leave a comment

Here are some sketches of a Vancouver Island Marmot skull found in the Royal BC Museum‘s Mammalogy Collection. This poor guy’s teeth got out of control (their teeth grow continuously and are worn down by regular chewing, like beavers) and that’s likely what caused it’s death. The Vancouver Island Marmot is an endangered species.
