Have you ever wondered how palaeontologists seem to know everything about a long-extinct species from a few skull and jaw fragments? Or how investigators can identify a predator from bite marks on a dead animal? Perhaps you have found a skull with attached jaw and wondered what kind of animal it was from, what it ate or how it lived. This workshop will teach you how to “read” skulls by observing the differences between carnivores, herbivores and omnivores, and between predators and prey. Participants will be given an opportunity to practice their skills by examining several mystery skulls.
