  • Skull | Cat | Felidae

    According to Wikipedia, the skull of a cat is unusual compared to other mammals because of its large eye sockets and powerful jaw.

    The teeth of cats have adapted so they can kill their prey and tear at meat.

    The carnassials - paired upper and lower teeth - shear meat into small pieces, like a pair of scissors. The carnassial pairs are crucial in helping cats to eat as their small molar teeth can't chew food very well.

    Interestingly, domestic cats have narrowly spaced canine teeth relative to the size of their jaw, which is an adaptation to their preferred prey of small mice and rats.

    These feral cat skulls measure approx. 10cm x 6cm. Just like in life, each specimen is unique and may vary to the one pictured.
