This colorful version of the SOMSO 14 piece disarticulated skull is comprised of color-coded individual pieces that can easily be interconnected with small plugs, allowing for a totally unique study experience. The skull is easy disarticulated and put back together, like a puzzle. The sphenoid, occipital, and two temporal bones fit together to form the base of the skull. The frontal and parietal bones attach to the anterior of the sphenoid bone. The facial and cranial portion of the skull is then completed with the attachment of the right and left maxilla bones, including lacrimal, nasal, and palatine bone. The Zygomatic bones also connect the facial and cranial bones, and each be individually removed. The mandible is fixed in place through the use of a hinge joint.
This fascinating skull model is well loved by students who want to study individual bones of the skull easily, and the color coding on this edition helps students quickly identify small bones on the fly. Many students pair it with a detailed chart, like the Human Skull Chart, for additional study options.
