Zoomify Images: Fig 14-01a Horned sheep cranium/dentition

Fig 14-01a Horned sheep cranium (A, lateral view, right side). The horn core, the bony portion of the skull that underlies the horn, is visible in this view. Horns differ from antlers and are found in bovids (e.g., cattle, sheep, and goats). The horn itself is made of keratin and rarely survives in archaeological contexts. (B, ventral view, the left portion of the maxilla is missing). The sheep’s dental formula is 0/3.0/1.3/3.3/3. The mandibular canine is incisiform and is followed by a long diastema.
