Another Acquisition For the Museum at Purgatory

This tiny and curious skull was found in the Meadowlakes area of Alaska.
It is not uncommon in this area to find mastodon tusks and bones from the dinosaurs that lived here before the human. Inspite of that this is a truly unique find.
A couple while foraging mushrooms for their soup discovered this most curious little skull, it resembles a tiny ram but says the couple "we are pretty sure rams are not that small."

This small artifact seems as obscure as the jack-alope or the shrunken mummies of Belsharha.
The couple intends to sell this to the Smithsonian or perhaps Ripleys Believe it or Not Museum for a king’s ransom.

But seriously, if anyone knows what this is or has ever seen anything like it, please contact the owner of this blog. All inquiries will be taken seriously.

I have no idea at all, but it's amazing. I've never seen anything like that so small.

I showed this pic to my boyfriend, who has hunted in Alaska for years, and he thinks it's fake. See the spongy looking stuff on the forehead? That would be sinus material, normally located behind the nose area. If it was a real skull, if it was challenged to a duel by another dall sheep, when they charged and smacked heads, all that bone would smush up. SBF thinks it was carved by a jokester.
