    Spray it with disinfectant if you're that worried?

    I've picked up dead animals/bones before and never noticed bad effects from doing so. :dontknow:

    It's probably got malaria, anthrax and the black plague. Be careful.

    Better keep it quiet if it's a badger cos having a badger skull is a criminal offence - no joking.

    hmm really?

    Ive had it years, I was on a walking thing with my dad and the group found it it had been picked clean by something , as I was only about 10 at the time I got to keep it for 'show and tell' at school XD Thinking about it I think we agreed it was a fox skull but as im not biologist I couldnt tell you

    Yeah

    (3) A person is guilty of an offence if, except as permitted by or under this Act, he has in his possession or under his control any dead badger or any part of, or anything derived from, a dead badger.
    basically if you've got a badger skull you're guilty unless you can prove you got it lawfully.

    Badger skull is quite a massive thing though - the jawbone can't be detached from the rest of the skull (without smashing the skull to bits)

    Hmm maybe its not a badger then if the skulls are big, its perhaps a little bigger than my hand as far as I can remember, dunno if the jaw comes off or not though :P I blame my dad/the other adults on the trip lol! they fought it was cool to take it to school :P
