These two Feline skulls are of vastly differing proportion. The domestic cat skull is one of many in the collection, and positioned beside a tiger skull illustrates the similarity in conformation of the bones, despite the difference in size. Both skulls are on display in the Veterinary Museum at the Pre-Clinical Veterinary School on Southwell Street, and are used by the students studying anatomy. The Veterinary Museum collection contains many further examples of skulls from different species of exotic quadruped including giraffe, tapir, rhinoceros, bear and guanaco.
