Compare Skull Structure of Avians with different Diets.

  • More options for comparative anatomy
  • Replica skulls are available from protected species
  • Cast from real specimens
  • Highly detailed skull structure
Each of these Skulls is a great addition for a comparative anatomy course, or as part of an overall collection for comparison in a general biology curriculum. Each skull is cast from a mold made from a real specimen, and is finished for a true bone appearance. Now you can show you students the skulls you could only describe before. Individual species are described below.

Bald Eagle: Native to North America and our national symbol, the bald eagle's wingspan can reach over 7 feet. Primarily fish eaters, they will also eat other birds and rodents. Even though they are migratory birds, they will stay in one location if they have access to the ocean or a lake as long as there is adequate food and nesting trees. Once on the brink of extinction with only 800 pairs, they have been increasing steadily, now with close to 3000 breeding pairs. We gratefully acknowledge and thank the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, Vertebrate Zoology section for this fine specimen from their extensive collection.

Great Horned Owl: The great horned owl is found throughout North, Central and South America. It is the heaviest of the owls and is about 2 feet long with tufts above its ears that resemble horns, hence the name. It is instantly recognized and most familiar for its ability to swivel its head a full 180 degrees. We gratefully acknowledge and thank the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, Vertebrate Zoology section for this fine specimen from their extensive collection.

Pileated Woodpecker: The pileated woodpecker is the largest woodpecker found in most of North America. Because of its size and chisel-shaped bill, the woodpecker is particularly adept at excavating and it uses this ability to construct nests, roost cavities and find food.

Hyacinth Macaw: The largest parrot, hyacinth macaws are striking birds with long, pointed tail feathers and a huge, hooked black beak. The upper beak seems impossibly large, deeply curved and sharply pointed. The oversized bill allows it to be one of the few creatures with the ability to crack the highly nutritious but notoriously hard palm nuts that make up a large part of its diet. The beak is also used to remodel natural tree cavities in hollow trees or to excavate tunnels in cliff faces, both of which sites are used for nesting and rearing their young. Their feet are also adapted to be highly manipulative and allow them more dexterity than most birds. These parrots often perch on one leg while using the other leg and their beak to manipulate food and other objects with precision. Hyacinth macaws are the only birds seen to groom one another. They are found in parts of Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia.
