Sažetak
The last specimens of indigenous Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) in Croatia were exterminated around year 1903. Lynx dispersed back to Croatia after six animals were reintroduced to Slovenia from Slovakia in 1973. Considering the consequences of founder effect, genetic drift and expected high level of homozygosity, the goal of this paper was to determine variation in teeth number, teeth and skull disorders in Croatian lynx. It should also determine whether there has been a change in frequency of occurrence of developmental anomalies in relation to the population it originates from and in relation to other lynx populations. We studied 58 lynx skulls originating from the reintroduced lynx population. Changes on teeth and skull were found on 23 skulls (39.7%): supernumerary maxillary second premolar P2 (9 skulls, 15.5%), supernumerary mandibular second molar M2 (3 skulls, 5.2%), congenitally absent maxillary incisor (3 skulls, 6.9%), extra tooth between maxillary third incisor I3 and canine (1 skull, 1.7%) and acquired disorders of teeth and skull (9, 15.5%).
