The Rudiger Anatomie Didactic Skull is dissectible into 18 parts along the separation of the natural bones a human skull is built of. The skull is held together by magnets. Every single bone of the skull is cast from hand-selected natural bone with all fine anatomical details translated during the manufacturing process. From the technical production side, every single bone is an enormous challenge, because the skull shows a variety of details, structures and projections. This skull is not a simple plastic reproduction, but a highly complicated product showcasing all minutia of the human skull, and the absolute top-of-the-line skull in the industry. The skull comes with a dentition of 31 single removable teeth with full roots. You may pull teeth from the maxillae and mandible for individual demonstration and place them back into the socket. The skull is dissectible into the following parts:
1. Base of skull: Os sphenoidale (1 part, sphenoid bone), Os temporale (3 parts, temporal bone, one side of the temporal bone is opened into two parts to show the inner ear), Os occipitale (1 part, occipital bone)
2. Top of skull: Os frontale (1 part, frontal bone) and Os parietale (2 parts, parietal bone)
3.
