This area of the museum examines the anatomy of the thylacine's skull and skeleton.  The first three subsections present detailed information on the morphology of the skull, dentition, and post-cranial skeleton.

In "Anatomical Diagrams of the Skull", the various parts of the skull are depicted through photographic diagrams.

"A Comparison of the Thylacine and Wolf Skull", demonstrates the anatomical differences between the skulls of the thylacine (Thylacinus cynocephalus) and Grey wolf (Canis lupus).

"A Comparison of the Thylacine and Wolf Dentition" focuses specifically on the differences in dental structure between these two species.

"Rotating View of the Skull" displays a 360° rotation of a thylacine skull.

In the "Magnified Views" subsection, you can interactively magnify a set of high resolution images of the thylacine skull and skeleton.
