Hornbills or Bucerotidae are a family of bird found in tropical and subtropical Africa, Asia and Melanesia.
They are characterized by a long, down-curved bill which is frequently brightly colored and sometimes has a casque on the upper mandible.
Both the common English and the scientific name of the family refer to the shape of the bill.
They are the only birds in which the first and second neck vertebrae are fused together. This probably provides a more stable platform for carrying the bill.
The family is omnivorous, feeding on fruit and small animals. They are monogamous breeders nesting in natural cavities in trees and sometimes cliffs.
We offer nine hornbill skulls in both male and female. They are the African Grey, Black-Casqued Hornbill, Great Hornbill, Helmeted Hornbill, White-Thighed Hornbill, and the Yellow-Casqued Hornbill.
