|The original 19 skull items, in alphabetical order of species.|
The skull is an item that can be dropped by many prehistoric creatures upon death or by mining fossil blocks. There is an individual skull item for each creature that drops it, and each (with the exception of the new terror bird skulls) has its own unique item texture.
The list of animals with skulls does not include mammals, birds, coelacanths, or nautilus. In this version, skulls do not produce bonemeal or DNA. They can, however, be used in creating skull helmets, a type of skull armor.
