"At left is a photo of the Enigma Cave brown bear skull as it was found in the cave. The back of the skull can be seen sticking up toward the top of the photo, and the front of the skull is buried in sediment. The photo above is the same skull shortly after it was removed from the cave in 1995. Note that sediment still fills many depressions in the skull and has given it a black color."
Is the 56cm skull found in slovenia is the largest skull discovered in the ursidae family?
I have no idea.
SKELETON OF A BEAR FOUND IN A CAVE IN STYRIA, AUSTRIA.
The skull on the board is of especial interest on account of the beautiful crystals of calcareous spar, which are from 1/10 to 1/4 of an inch long, and are formed on the inner sides of the skull. The skull is 5-1/2 in. wide between the fangs and 6-3/5 in. wide at the forehead, whereas the skull of the skeleton is only 3-9/10 in. wide at the fangs and 5-1/10 in. wide at the forehead. The skull of the skeleton is 22 in. long. The small white object on the board supporting the detached skull represents the skull of an ordinary cat, thus giving an idea of the enormous size of the bear's skull. The skeleton is 9 ft. 8 in. high, and is one of the largest and most complete that has been found.
