The research involved 130 boar and 104 domestic pig skulls. The skulls were divided into sex and age groups and craniometric measurements were determined for each; the cranial cavity volume was determined. In boars, in both age groups, a greater cranial cavity volume was noted as compared with that of the domestic pig. The cranial cavity volume is correlated mostly with the length of the neurocranium base.
