Eskeletons - Interactive Environment to Explore & Skeletal Anatomy

This image compares the skulls of Gorillas & Humans
Eskeletons is an interactive site created by the University of Texas at Austin's Department of Anthropology.  The site allows you to explore and examine human and non-human primate skeletal anatomy.  This site is a great site if you are wanting to study the human skeletal system and/or compare the bones to different primates. 

Simply choose your Taxon (Human, Gorilla, Chimpanzee, Baboon, and many more) then choose the bone.  Finally, you can choose the view of the bone you want.  Then you will find high quality images of REAL BONES and not computer generated bones.  You can even select multiple Taxon at once so you can look at and compare their bone images all at once. 

This site is a wonderful tool when student human skeletal anatomy or that of different primates.
