After an act of graffiti damaged one of the skulls used for study by veterinary students at the University of Illinois, Ashley Lynch, instructional laboratory specialist, turned lemons into lemonade and color-coded the skulls to cover the ink. The result is highly visual guides that the students love to work with. Do you remember every feature you learned—perhaps many moons ago—about the skull? Test your memory with photos of Lynch’s skulls on the pages that follow.
