Digital Morpology

Just thought I'd share this link with all interested in reptile morphology and anatony:

The site is not reptile-specific and also show numerous other naimsl incl. inverts, fish, mammals, amphibians etc.

I just love checking out CT slices through animals skuls, or digital skeletons etc.

Here are a few screenshots to get the blood flowing:

Vertical CT slice of Gila Monster


Digital skull of Gila Monster


Digital skeleton of Kingsnake in egg


Horizontal CT slice of Kingsnake in egg


Horizontal CT slice of Burmese Python skull (check out those teeth!!!!!)


And this is just a small taste of what the site can do and the species available to view. Believe me, you'll spend hours on there checking out animals, including humans, dogs, cats, scorpions, kingfisher etc.

I never want to get bitten by a Gila Monster!

Good stuff, very interesting and thanks for sharing :)
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.
