Piecing Together an Extinct Lemur, Large as a Big Baboon (1 of 3)

Caption: This image shows how the pieces of the skull of Hadropithecus fit together (in front, superior, inferior, and left lateral views). The white portions are original fossils discovered in 1902. The areas colored red are the frontal fragments excavated in 2003. The regions shown in blue were created by making a mirror image from the opposite side of this skull. The gray section was reconstructed with wax from the 3-D stereolithography print. The scale bar is 10 mm.
