This popped up on my computer at work. Thought you guys might find it interesting. There could possibly be some subspecies of larger polar bear out there with skulls that are more elongated in the back.

I don't know if it's very likely, but I think it's definitely more credible than Bigfoot and the possibility is fun to think about.

I just measured my polar bear skull.....and it is about 15.75 - 16.0 inches. I'll be curious to see if anything comes of this ......

Do you always subscribe to the Archeology Journal? What do you do for a profession?

No Jake. I'm a knuckledragger not an archeologist.

I'm a paint guy, but curious by nature and interested in sharing science articles with my kids to encourage their education. Anonymouse is a Bowsiter who used to be an educator who feeds me links to all sorts of interesting science articles and experiments.

Have a guy with a bunch of hunting and science based search engine history and the publication of the Archaeological Institute of America article about a 1300 year old, differently shaped polar bear skull pops up.

So, I'm glad that I'm not one of those Chicago porn addicts. I could see some link for "Big Ass Bears", click on it and end up looking at a thirty year old, naked picture of Richard Perry.

16" doesn't seem to be extraordinarily long In reference to record book bears.

This other link had popped up as well. It claims that the skull is the fourth largest skull ever found. I'm not a polar bear hunter. I don't know. How wide are polar bear skulls? It's length plus width for book measurement, right?

If this is inaccurate, I apologize. I thought it was interesting and thought the Archaeological Institute of America should be accurate.

The age of the skull is pretty darn impressive!
