Photo Challenge Entry #13 Caveman and Beaver
Perhaps one of the more interesting skulls I have is this beaver. It certainly is the most sturdily built. Very heavy, very solid. Like most rodents, beavers have an orange layer of extra-hard enamel on the front of their teeth. This causes the front of the tooth to wear more slowly than the back, which serves to keep the teeth constantly sharp.
As I was setting this shot up, I was struck by how cavern-like the skull looked close up. So I added the caveman and adjusted the lighting to more closely resemble a stony landscape.
