Stage 2 science students at Woy Woy Public School have discovered what is believed to be a flying fox skull while cataloguing the leaf litter of their Bush Tucker Garden on September 1.
“The skull is 7cm long and 4cm wide, with some teeth intact,” said science teacher Ms Lisa Mills.
Ms Mills said the discovery was made by student Patti Bisson.
“After some research at the Gympie Bone Museum in Queensland and further research through the principal of Rumbulara Environmental Education Centre in Gosford, we came to the consensus that the skull possibly belongs to a grey-headed flying fox.
