    This skull was found in a creek bottom in TX, the dimensions are approx 5"x 5". Someone suggested that its a pot bellied pig skull, but i find that highly unlikely unless somone discarded a piglet.

    The skull looks a bit deformed, either naturally or mechanically.
    Any ideas?

    It's hard to tell from those angles. Would you be able to take a few more from different angles?

    I'd say either a javelina or a small pig.

    It looks to be a subspecies of that rare prehistoric creature, Christoulapithecus.

    Looks like a giant rodent, maybe a Nutria? They're pretty common in Louisiana so Texas isn't much of a stretch.

    You've seen my skulls! You've looked in the furnace!

    It belonged to a neighbor of yours.. who went by the name of Napp. I offered to buy their house... but, you know how old people grow so attached to things.
