Gelada (USNM 319992)
Old World monkeys are primates and are more closely related to humans and apes than any other living nonhuman primate group. The Smithsonian Institution’s Division of Mammals (http://vertebrates.si.edu/mammals/) houses many Old World monkeys in its scientific collections.
This specimen, USNM 319992 (http://collections.nmnh.si.edu/search/mammals/?irn=7309550), is a female northern gelada (Theropithecus gelada gelada) collected in 1962.
This is a CT scan of the cranium of USNM 319992.
