  • Utilizing measurements from 1354 C. porosus, we have derived formulae for predicting snout-vent length from 17 other attributes. The specific problem of predicting body size from an isolated head or skull is treated separately and some data are presented on proportional tissue loss in skull preparation. Sexual dimorphism was examined, and is demonstrated in interocular width, the width at the midpoint of the cranial platform, and the length of the tail. Discriminant analysis has been used to… CONTINUE READING
