Macaque, Indonesia (USNM 114162)
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 114162 (http://collections.mnh.si.edu/search/mammals/?irn=7243605), is a female crab-eating Macaque (Macaca fascicularis fusca) from the Island of Sumatra. This individual was collected by William Abbott in 1901 near Pulo Simalur, Indonesia.
This is a CT scan of the cranium of USNM 114162. These three-dimensional scans are made publicly available through the generous support of the Smithsonian 2.0 Fund, provided from the annual gifts of the Smithsonian National Board to the Secretary to use at his discretion (http://smithsonian20.si.edu/fund.html), and the Smithsonian Collections Care and Preservation Fund.
