Gorilla Hand in Knuckle-walking Pose on Brass Stand
SC-028-184-LOC $225.00

Stand Included

This hand from our quadrupedal gorilla skeleton SC-028 is articulated to demonstrate the gorilla's knuckle-walking stance on land - the most common type of locomotion for gorillas, although they occasionally use bipedal posture to move about. In addition to terrestrial locomotion, gorillas use their hands for gathering food, grooming, tool use, and communication. Opposable thumbs allow for grasping. Both gorillas and chimpanzees employ knuckle-walking.

The hand is a complex structure that is a representation of an animal's evolutionary history, from the simple tetrapod (a four-limbed, five-fingered animal) to a more complex organism. The study of comparative primate hands can yield insight into many areas of investigation through many disciplines: from K-12 to upper level work in the fields of evolution, biology, locomotion, and physical anthropology.

If you have a preference of right or left side, let us know in the comment section during checkout. Otherwise, we will choose.
