Even though I made this one responsive as I do with everything on this website, this post is best viewed on a larger screen. I’m still searching for a way to make these apps completely responsive on all screens and load in an order that does justice to the app, but that takes time.
Buccal Mass of Eledone cirrhosa explained
Eledone cirrhosa is one of the most common cephalopods and regularly used for research. In this application the beak and musculature of this cephalopod is shown and explained. The beak is important because most of the time it is the only remains of any cephalopod, so researchers are eager to link the appearance of the beak to species, size, gender and age. The beak is controlled by a complex musculature. The musculature shown here is interpolated from the study done by Uyeno and Kier in 2006 on Octopus bimaculoides, the beak is from an Eledone cirrhosa specimen I examined myself.
