Since we just started a new week, I take the liberty to start a new SOTW. This one is an old male babirussa I just completed. This peculiar relatives of the pig only lives in Indonesia, on the island Celebes and a few smaller nearby islands. Since this used to be Dutch territory untill 1948, these skulls are not uncommon in old collections in Holland. This one however was made from a fresh head from a zoo, where you can see the species occasionally. The head was half freeze-dried and very fat, but fortunately the bone wasn't exceptionally greasy.
