Yes geese have teeth which is the most interesting feature of this skull. I was collecting skulls a few years as I was in an oddities faze. Thus the giant insects and others. Just bought this two weeks ago as I have a soft spot for these and it is a bit unusual. The skull is almost 6" long and as mentioned earlier it has teeth. They aren't large but will leave a mark plus give the goose a good grip.
Geese are known for being aggressive. Some people use them like guard dogs.

    TRIVIA: Back in 1968 we used geese in Vietnam under bridges as alarms. The bridges kept getting blown up at night so we used geese under the bridges because they would go nuts if someone came near them. We quickly found out the locals liked a nice goose for eggs and as a meal so we lost a few. Very quickly all of our geese were dyed purple so we could identify them and repossess them as needed.

    Thank you very much fhrjr2. Great piece of trivia. Apparently geese do make good guards.
