A scientific experiment with the mysterious Bhutan skull

I’ve been trying to figure out something – anything – about this strange skull I received in the mail, the package postmarked from Bhutan in S.E. Asia.  As I said initially, the skull seemed to be warm to the touch, above ambient or room temperature, even after being outside on the porch in near-freezing weather.  I wanted to try to measure that as ‘scientifically’  as possible (disclaimer, I am not a scientist, the closest I come to ‘science’ is watching MythBusters)  and I found a way to do it – I went to Home Depot and bought an infra-red thermometer, one that instantly reads the temperature of whatever you point it at.  It works well too, as you can see.  I measured room temperature, then the skull, and there was around a 10 degree difference – but then I decided to take it to the ‘next level’ as they say.

I put it in the freezer and let it sit there for an hour, right next to the ice cream.  I pulled it out after the hour was up, and the temperature had barely dropped – maybe half a degree, if that?  To say ‘that’s not natural’ seems a pretty obvious statement, clearly.

What is this thing, and who sent it to me?  Why?

Having this thing in the house makes me incredibly uncomfortable, but I can’t get rid of it either – it seems wrong somehow.
