    We provide a 3D reconstruction of the skull of Latimeria chalumnae that can be easily accessed and visualized for a better understanding of its cranial anatomy. Different skeletal elements are saved as separate PLY files that can be combined to visualize the entire skull or isolated to virtually dissect the skull. We included some guidelines for a fast and easy visualization of the 3D skull.
