My what a large crest you have!

Some critters with massive jaw muscles have them anchored to a central crest; others just anchor the jaw muscles to each other. I've no idea what the relative advantages are, if any.

I've handled my share of Alaskan fox skulls and it's interesting how the crest varies by age and genetics. This is the first time I've taken notice of a fisher I guess. Fantastic animal and wonderful work as always.

I've carved red and gray fox skulls, and mostly noticed the difference between the two types, though no two skulls were exactly alike. I have noticed great differences in badger skulls, in proportions and texture.

Do badgers have captive hinge bottom jaws like wolverines? I've never had the pleasure of handling one myself but I do love the look of them.

Badgers definitely have a captive hinge on the jaw; quite impressive. And rather solid construction.
