Large Dolphin Skull

Large Dolphin Skull
Copyright (0000)

Though very similar to the other dolphin skull in the museum, the size and shape of this one is different enough that two might be of different species, or perhaps one might be a porpoise. Anyone with definite information is urged to add a comment below.

This skull was taken from a dolphin washed up on Agia Pelagia beach in 1992. Gift of Uri Solomon. Skull, showing domed head, lower jaw and teeth, 45 cm long.
