Very nice skull--I like the feature that allows the jaw to be moved and removed. Looking forward to using it for my studies.
Alas, poor Yorick! Initially bought this for a stage production of Hamlet for my school, but wound up being a wonderful piece to use when helping my son at home for his Biology class.
Very basic skull. No bells and whistles and that is what I was looking for.
I have been eyeing this model for a good year now and finally received it for my birthday! it's a lot bigger than I thought it was going to be and is very detailed! It looks like something I would have paid $100+ for but is in my budget! If you are looking to buy a skull for whatever, this is the one I recommend you buy!
I actually just needed a skull for a Shakespeare play that my theater group was putting on, but this model is great, especially for the price. The fine details are not something that the audience will see, but it definitely fascinated me. Thinking about taking an basic anatomy class next semester. Love it!
I looked through all of the skulls on Anatomy Warehouse and decided on this one. It looks just like the more expensive ones but it's a fraction of the cost. I'm very happy with my purchase!
