There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Is there a way to gauge this leopard skull its dimensions?

It looks fairly large compared to the crocodile and forest buffalo skulls. It also possesses wide zygomatic arches.

Judging by its size, I'm fairly sure it belonged to a male leopard so should be at least 240 mm long.

I found another angle of the skulls:

@“peter”
Thanks a lot for your kind words, I have pictures and measurements of a few Jaguars and Pumas from some time back  I am planning to go to a great Museum located about two hours from Caracas but sadly it is closed right now so I have to wait. I can post the ones I saw before and the ones I have at home too. I have 3 puma skulls from los Llanod and 1 Jaguar skull from Estado Amazonas,
