Interactive Cat Skull

The Interactive Cat Skull is a collection of interactive movies consisting of images showing the cat skull from the side, front, back, top, bottom, and bisected. Each image is a high quality photograph of a real skull that is animated by moving arrows and pop-up labels to illustrate regions or bones within the skull. Individual parts of the skull are listed below the image; "clicking" on the name accesses the moving arrow for that skull part. A narrative sound track is included, but may be muted if desired. The animated images (QuickTime movies) are linked to allow progress from one view to another. Individual movies may also be selected from an index. On the lighter side, an "assemble-the-skull" puzzle is included to test knowledge of structure.
