    I have googled a few images. I am quite confident that it is a Raccoon. This skull is bulbous in the rear unlike the images I have seen posted for opossum skulls (that all appear to have a ridge that almost appears like a mo-hawk (for lack of a better description).

    Thanks for all the help guys!

    I would LOVE to see some of the skulls you fellows talk about having, and the manner in which you display them.

    It is raccoon. Not a guess.
    I never said I got it right, I just said I remembered it from the test

    Fawn it looks like to me. Eye shape, tooth shape, etc.

    On second look.. rabbit? Do you have the skull still? Any measurements could help. I want to say deer fawn, but even then it looks a tad small.

    I have a coyote skull, and a young beaver (missing the lower jaw) sitting on the top of my computer desk. A couple of European white-tail mounts on the wall above them. The coyote skull had to be wired together (museum style) to attach the jaw bone, and hold the two lower front pieces together.

    ....
    Those look like deer teeth to me, too. As far as size, it could have been still born. House cat skulls look half the size they ought to, also.
