3D data and models related to the publication: An updated description of the osteology of the pancake tortoise Malacochersus tornieri (Testudines: Testudinidae) with special focus on intraspecific variation


Mautner, Anna-Katharina; Latimer, Ashley E; Fritz, Uwe; Scheyer, Torsten M (2017). 3D data and models related to the publication: An updated description of the osteology of the pancake tortoise Malacochersus tornieri (Testudines: Testudinidae) with special focus on intraspecific variation. MorphoMuseuM, 2(2):e4.

Abstract

The inner ear and brain endocast (Fig. 1) using micro CT scandata is part of a revised osteological analysis of the pancake tortoise Malacochersus tornieri (Mautner et al., 201X). This tortoise has a very flat shell, which allows the animal to hide in cracks and under rocks in its natural habitat, i.e. rocky arid shrub and thorny brush environments in Tanzania and adjacent countries in eastern Africa (e.g., Procter, 1922).
