This is a model of an adult or subadult Leptarctus primus cranium. We age it as such given that its teeth lack much visible wear. The original skull was somewhat damaged and so parts of the skull were mirrored to replicate the skull's natural symmetry. This model was constructed via the following: skull was CT-scanned, compiled, cleaned in Mimics, smoothed in Geomagic Studio 12, and then completed in Strand7 for biomechanical simulations using finite element analysis.
