Do those spine holes look vaguely obscene to anyone else?

You know what I love most about skulls? The sutures. They're so, so cool looking, like wavy EKGs.

Animals that fight by banging heads (the big horned sheep is a good example) have more complex interlocking skull sutures than other similar animals. There is a little give in the 'joints' where the different head bones join and are held together by shock-absorbing ligament-like structures - this is supposed to allow the skulls to withstand impacts that would otherwise shatter them.

That is fascinating, cep. I don't know why I never considered the skull adaptations necessary to survive constant massive head injuries. Now I really want to see a big horned sheep skull close up.

Are all the other non-caribou ones human? The drawing up top looks like I would expect, I never imagined anything as intricate as the ones in the photos.

This is just like the first time I saw a horse molar.
