Each entry contains photographs from six different angles (anterior, posterior, left, right, superior, and inferior) with caliper measurements and information (taxonomy, sex, and age). Some entries also contains photographs of crania with the mandible (only Primates) or pictures of living mammals. This database allows to browse data using phylogenetic table, Japanese name, English name, scientific name, or the order and genus lists.
