This Beauchene human skull model is a great tool for teaching and learning the complex anatomy of the human skull. The human skull consists of many individual bones that gradually grow together as the development proceeds. The best Beauchene Adult Human Skull is a natural cast of a human beauchene skull and makes the complex anatomical structure of the skull easy to understand, since it can be disassembled into its 22 individual bones.
In this didactic version all the bones/bone pairs are colored to make dentification easier. The individual bones can be reassembled by means of inconspicuous, stable connectors attached at the slightly simplified skull sutures.
The different bones are attached together with a clever internal pin system which does not affect the natural anatomy. Due to the large number of bones (22) the pin system offers the advantage of being more stable compared to magnet connections.
The skull consists of the following individual bones:
Parietal bone (left and right)
Temporal bone (left and right)
Zygomatic bone (left and right)
Upper jaw (maxilla) with teeth (left and right)
Palatine bone (left and right)
Nasal concha (left and right)
Lacrimal bone (left and right)
