Feral Hog?

I love to say this word. Feral. I say it again and it makes my nose crinkle up–front lip puckering to expose my own mouth full of teeth. So this jawbone–not a horse–a FERAL offering. Because horses don’t have tusks.

It’s approximately 18″–probably longer originally. Tusky-like things at the very front. Are wild boars that large? Requires further forensic investigation. And clearly too late to call 911.

Quick search. Not an elephant. Not a walrus. These tusky things are on the bottom mandible–its top counterpart seems to be missing so I don’t know about it. And it appears that they’re not tusks at all, but tushes. So yes, maybe a wild boar? Still looking.
