The skeleton of a Swazi dragon lizard (Smaug swazicus, NMB R9201), a fluid-preserved specimen from the National Museum Bloemfontein. The species was recently described here. The skin contains bony plates (osteoderms), which are shown here in teal.
This model was made with Volumegraphics VGStudioMax 3.3 from a CT scan produced by a Phoenix V|Tome|X S. The model was generated to complement a learning activity designed during the UF Center for Precollegiate Education and Training workshop “3D Vertebrates: From Museum Shelves to Classrooms.” Modeling of this specimen was funded by the oVert project at the University of Florida (NSF DBI 1701714, https://tinyurl.com/oVertwiki).
