North American Red Fox Skull-Proff Taxidermist Cleaned-Study/Biology/Fox/Coyote

 




North American Red Fox (Vulpes) Skull
Professionally Cleaned by Taxidermist


General Description
This Red Fox skull is in almost flawless condition and has been thoroughly and professionally cleaned.  NB-A Quality Standard. Total skull length is 5-5/8". Width is 3". All of the upper molars, premolars, canines and incisors are present and mature. They are completely free of any debris or defect including cracks, horizontal or vertical. All of which display a beautiful white & polished appearence. The tiny nasal bones have been removed strictly for aesthetics. If you require one with nasal bones intact, please feel free to email us. The back of the skull has absolutely no bones missing, misplaced or stained.  Lower Jaw: The lower mandible canines are intact with no damaged or debris. The molars are intact with the exception of one tiny immature molar in the rear left. It is missing. This is not considered a defect by all grading standards and is very common. The mandible sections (right and left) are perfectly aligned and situate directly below the upper canines in their proper positions. I am a professional Taxidermist and very picky about details so you can be assured you will get a quality product. There has been no bleach used on this skull. Caution to those who buy skulls where bleach has been used. It will eat into the bone and make it very brittle over time. Pitting and scarring will also become evident. I have done technical descriptions below for those who might consider using these specimens for scientific study or biology labs.


UPPER SKULL PORTION
Scientific Description
The Zygomatic arch is total length of 2-1/4" The frontal, maxilla and premaxilla portions are intact without major defect. The nasal bones are removed for aesthetic reasons only. The total skull length is 5-5/8" from the tip of the nasal bone to the end of the basisphenoid area.  The upper molars are all fully mature, free of debris, undamaged and in position. The upper incisors are intact and have indications of normal wear. There are no cracks, vertical or horizontal. Underside of top portion: All sections or end pieces of the basisphenoid and auditory bullae are intact . Normal fractures exist only where on zygomatic arch of skull. the occipital area measures 2". The pariental region displays the classic "V" shape sagital crest indicative of Red Fox vs Grey Fox.

LOWER MANDIBLES
Scientific Description

As described above, the two mandibles sides were glued in place, in coordination to upper skull portion so the molars and canines align perfectly . The incisors  and molars are intact and in proper position. They show normal wear. There are no vertical or horizontal cracks in any  other areas of the incisors, top or bottom. The coronoid and articular processes are normal and without defect. They align perfectly below to the front of the auditory bulla region.
