Paranthropus robustus (SK-48) Cast Replica Skull #BH-003

Size: 6¼"L x 6"W x 4¾"H

-Species: Paranthropus robustus

-Notes: This 2-1.5 million year old Paranthropus robustus skull (SK-48) was discovered by a quarryman named Fourie in Swartkrans, South Africa in 1950 and described by Robert Broom in 1952. SK-48, formerly called Paranthropus crassidens, greatly increased what is known about australopithecines. The Transvaal cave site where it was found was blasted by explosives but, remarkably, the skull survived. The skull was found with the right canine, the first premolar and all three molars intact. On the basis of the adult teeth and small sagittal crest, Broom determined the specimen to be an adult female.
