Dear List,
I am a graduate student conducting research on California Sea Lions, and I
need to remove the upper canines from the cleaned skulls.  I am having
difficulty extracting the teeth; I would prefer not to cut into the bone so
that the rest of the skull remains intact.  So far we have tried macerating
and also using a tooth-extraction tool, but there has not been a great deal
of progress as the roots are so large.  Any suggestions that you may have
are greatly appreciated.

Thank-you,

Amber Bifolck
