Doodle-A-Day 288-293

I've recently been very obsessed with mammal skulls.  I think that it's fascinating how, unlike reptile skulls which are generally very straightforward, mammal skulls almost never look like what they are.  I love the complicated architecture and think they are a lot of fun to draw.  So I have drawn 6 different mammal skulls below.  Try and figure out what mammal they belong to!  (Answers at bottom)

(HINT: As with most of my work, there seems to have been a strong carnivore bias.  I wonder why that is?  Perhaps I am a more violent person than I believe...  Also, for the fourth one, look at the ear...)

  1. Horse
  2. Mouse
  3. River Otter
  4. Vampire Bat
  5. Dog
  6. Polar Bear
