The next video in our India Unboxed series comes from the Museum of Zoology.
The Indian Gharial, Gavialis gangeticus, is one of the largest living crocodilians and this skull is one of the largest in any collection. It was collected from the Yamuna River in north-central India, and presented to the Museum in 1897 by Ernest Hanbury Hankin, a pioneering bacteriologist working in India on the spread of disease.
India Unboxed is a year-long celebration across the University and city of Cambridge to mark the UK–India Year of Culture 2017.
