  • Grizzly Skull

    My former co-worker and I were having this conversation about outdoors, skulls, and many other fascinating things about what's discovered in Alaska a couple years ago. She just reposted this picture on her Facebook page and I was reminded of her story.
    She told me that her dad discovered this amazing Grizzly Skull. When we worked together, she asked me to come around to look at her picture and sure enough, this bear skull is HUGE.
    She told me at one time it was on display somewhere down in the Lower 48 and her dad was waiting for it to come back.

    Here is a picture of the Grizzly skull.
    Maybe some of you know who they are or have seen this picture before. I haven't seen it on Outdoors Directory, so with permission from my friend and former co-worker, she's allowing me to post this picture of her dad (Skip) with his Grizzly skull:


    Now... for the sake of you all that like to go and search for this stuff 'just to be sure', I went ahead and did it for you:

    Enjoy! You never know what you will find in Alaska's country. Skip was just taking a walk/hike when he discovered it.

      that's big

      As big as that is, it looks like a Cave Bear skull. Do you know how long and wide it is?

        Amazing, isn't it? I know that I am fascinated by it.
        Here is what's on the Boone and Crocket website:
        Greatest length of skull without lower jaw: 17 4/16
        Greatest width of skull: 10 9/16

        After I posted this, I realized that maybe this should be in the 'Wildlife' forum. My feelings arent hurt if this is moved.
        Thanks!

          It looks like the Cave Bear skull they have on display at Fairbanks F&G.

            Yeah, I am not sure where it's located at, but it could very well be at Fairbanks F&G. There is a nice little history behind it, though.
            Skip is also a guide and a taxidermist. He has a bear that he mounted on display at the Fairbanks International Airport.

                    I think its fairly fresh, like the last 10 or so years.

                    It too white to be Prehistoric.
                    Even bones out of the permafrost are deeply stained with minerals.
                    Then again, it says he was a taxadermy kinda guy...

                    Looks like "The one that got away"
                    If you can't Kill it with a 30-06, you should Hide.:topjob:

                      Thats pretty cool! Amazing how worn down the teeth are. I like the pic they have in Knights taxidermy of the brown bear skull and human skull found together on Kodiak Island. Want to say Pinell and Talifson found it but not positive.

                              Thanks for the help hunt ak,.. as you know I use crayons better than computers.

                              This one came from the Ural, 40,000-60,000 yrs old, could be older.
                              They don't make them any more, Romania cracked down, no more outsiders. Sales thru the Gov't.
                              Sizable one like this one are getting hard to find.
                              And they are not cheap.
                              More info later, don't want to 'wreck' this thread.
