Broken into thirteen lessons, discussion begins with planes of dissection and directional terms followed by general bone groupings, parts, and tissues. Exploration continues with bones of the rear limb followed by bones of the forelimb. The vertebral column and pelvis are presented next followed by a thorough examination of the skull and mandible. Beautiful, close-up photography and videography makes learning a joy.
