Default help identifying skull

Hi everyone,

I found this skull when out in the woods hunting yesterday, and I wondered if any of you could help me identify it.

Any replies are appreciated.

Thanks.

Thanks for all the replies - I thought it might be too big for coon, but I could be wrong. Also, I didn't realize coons had those really big canine teeth on the sides.

Its either a raccoons or a oppossums. My dog is always bringing up critters she has killed in the woods. Just last month I found a skull that looks just like that in my backyard.

It looks like the K-9 is about 3/16"-1/4" thick front-to-back. That's extremely large for a coon tooth.


The slope of the nose is very unique: otherwise I'd say beagle.
