This is the Skull Island, a fictional island first appearing in the 1933 film King Kong and later appearing in its sequels and in the two remakes.Skull Island is located at approximately 12°S 78°E / 12°S 78°E / -12; 78 — somewhere off the coast of Sumatra. There is a distinctive rocky knoll in the center of the island which is shaped like a human skull, hence its foreboding name. It is the home of the eponymous King Kong and several other species of creatures, mostly prehistoric and in some cases species that should have been extinct long before the rise of mammalian creatures such as gorillas, along with a primitive society of humans.The World of Kong: A Natural History of Skull Island is a 2005 encyclopedic book, made for the release of Peter Jackson’s King Kong. The book tells all about King Kong’s fictional world. It talks about everything on Skull Island, from the dinosaurs to the insects of Kong’s world.
