A squint fact, for the Squint in us all

Whew, its been a while since Ive posted a squint fact, but with a slight break in classes and a Bones hiatus, I figure its about time for another fact.

In the above photo, there are pictures of an adult male and female skull. It labels each major area measured or observed in sex determination. The first point I would look at is letter B. This is called the supraorbital margin, or brow ridge. It is sharper, or more gracile, in females. In males it will appear more rounded and thicker or robust.
