How to "Read" a Skull: Pathology

The pathology of a skull can tell you what may have caused an animal's death. Pathology is damage that may be the result of trauma, disease, or infection. These pathologic conditions might tell you if the animal was hit by a car, shot by a gun, died from disease or was killed by another animal.
