About The Product

Published via the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Antarctic examine Series.

The osteology of the Ross seal (Ommatophoca rossi) is defined. The bones of this species heavily resemble these of Leptonychotes, the single different Monachinae for which a common osteology is on the market. The hand and foot of Ommatophoca are particularly longer than these of different phocids, and a number of other features of this seal are adaptative adjustments for swimming and for swallowing huge prey. attainable sexual discriminating features are mentioned.
