I wouldn't like a bite from one. The crest of bone along the top of the head is for muscle attachment. The bigger the muscle, the bigger the crest, the harder the bite. Not so cute without the ears.

My son and I just found one too, we are stoked! The ear bones are huge on a koala skull!

I know! Thought initially it was a roo missing the front of it's nose, as we didn't expect it to be a koala at all! But definitely a koala! Will post a pic once we've cleaned it up!

Anyone know if we can if it's male or female from the skull? We don't have the lower jaw, either (although might go back and look for it!)
