Kangaroo Mouse skeleton.
Frog Anatomy Time! I have no idea the species for this guy, it wasn’t labeled.
I enjoyed drawing this guy even though I started his skull half a dozen times before I finally settled on it. The problem was I kept starting at his nose. The final time I started with the mid line and the back of his skull, then the rest just filled in, and I finished with the vertebrae and the scapula.
Veiled chameleon, (Chamaeleo calyptratus), prepared with a process called diaphonization, or clearing and staining. The specimen undergoes a series of chemical baths including submersion in a digestive enzyme to render the tissues transparent. It is eventually placed in a soliton of alizarin, a highly pigmented red dye that bonds to the bones, and afterwards is preserved in glycerin.

This incomplete dog skeleton was found by a friend of mine (pandaaa) and I cleaned it. He was an old male hound with several pathologies due to age.
Great find !
