This image shows the range of variation seen in the size and shape of the mandibular dentition of mammals, spanning from the tiny mouse in the center of the image to the large walrus in the upper right corner. A human mandible is just to the left of the walrus. This photograph was taken by Professors Tim White and Leslea Hlusko using specimens in the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology's collections.
