EXPLORE VISIBLE APE CONTENT

The Visible Ape Project offers several anatomy visualization modes for 6 extant ape species: Chimpanzees, Bonobos, Gorillas, Orangutans, Gibbons, and Siamangs as well as for humans. Types of visualization include Dissection Photography, Brain MRIs, CT scan-based 3D Skeletons, Artist Rendered Anatomical Reconstructions, Scientific Illustrations, and Raw File Downloads and Datasets. Use the dropdown menus to locate specific site content or browse our entire collection of species-specific resources and visualizations using the links below.
