Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy: Vertebrate Skulls

Left to Right: Lizard, Turtle, Crocodile, Bird, Cat

This is a collection of drawings I did based on photos of skulls from my Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy class in college.  One of my favorite classes, and a great area of biology.  Each skull shown above consists of the same bones, just adapted for different purposes.  Had I color-coded each bone, you could see how varied each individual bone can be, but the general shape of the skull conveys the same idea.
