Bonobo, Democratic Republic of Congo (RG 9338)

This is a CT scan of the articulated cranium and mandible of RG 9338.

We acknowledge the support of the European Union (EU NEST Pathfinder Proposal No 29023). These three-dimensional scans are made publicly available through the generous support of the Smithsonian 2.0 Fund, provided from the annual gifts of the Smithsonian National Board to the Secretary to use at his discretion (http://smithsonian20.si.edu/fund.html), and the Smithsonian Collections Care and Preservation Fund.

The main goal of this joint initiative between the Smithsonian's Human Origins Program, the Smithsonian's Division of Mammals, and the Royal Museum for Central Africa in Tervuren, Belgium is to make scientific collections of our closest living relatives, the apes, available in 3D for education and research.
