Frontpaws and shoulders of the rat

Finally I am able to unlock some of the stuff I made in the last few years! A big thank you goes to Ian Pretorius who is a wiz with javascript.


This one here is the first out of many more. It is a tutorial about the bones in the forearm of a rat. These tutorials will eventually get their own place, where I will be selling complete anatomical tutorials about different animals.

First I will tackle the anatomy of the rat, but I made a lot more anatomical stuff in recent years, so expect a bonanza of cool animal anatomy!

About the course unit

In this unit information about the bones of the forearms and shoulder of the rat. The skeletal structure is rather similar to a human skeleton, with the exception of the tumb.

  • Clavicle
  • Scapula
