There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

The measurements are based on skull morphometrics such as the area of the masseteric fossa. In other words, all animals studied are dead and their dry bones are simply being measured. The equipment includes a caliper, maybe a CT scanner, and a computer, no pressure sensors involved.

Nice to know. So what do you think about this study? It looks like to be quite serious and objective one:

Of course it would be very interesting to see real tests too and what kind of differences and/or similarities with calculated ones in the way you describe. But I guess, that there really isn´t any larger study so, that many different animals would have been tested in some comparable way by same people and equipment(?).
