With its greatly elongated and spectacularly curved canine teeth the skull of the babirusa is extraordinary, and has long been sought-after by skull collectors. It is also rare - for the pig-like creature from which it comes is found only on certain small islands in Indonesia where it is now threatened by hunting and habitat destruction. This particular skull is a nineteenth century specimen with a wonderful rich patina.
