Awesome! But now I have to go back and figure out what I missed...

Ed said...

Most of my mistakes stemmed from the fact I wrongly identified the aardwolf as a hyena and thus got mixed up trying to find the skull with the biggest teeth! Thus the big-cats, dogs and the sea lion all became mixed up.

That white-cheeked gibbon is VERY similar to the female black-crested gibbon that I put down, very confusing!

Maybe a reptile version next time!

... and now that I realized which two species I mixed up, I'm just embarassed...

... a cheetah is not a tiger!

Well done to the both of you anyway. Andrea, I think those were the only two you mixed up, I will admit the cheetah skull wasn't the best photo but the only one I had. Ed, I may very well do a reptile version soon, so stay tuned!
