Bit of a Science Geek

Paranthropus aethiopicus, also known as the Black Skull, is an extinct species of hominid dating back 2.5 million years ago. Finding one of these Black skulls would make one heck of an addition to any Halloween collection. If you feel like doing a little excavating you can find one for yourself somewhere in West Turkana, Kenya or for the less adventurous souls you can go on over to eBay and check out Char Lee. Definitely not nearly as old as the Paranthropus but a rare find non the less.
