Going back to school so to speak, working off of photos of a green iguana. Those temporal fenestra freak me out. How can muscle fill that up? Where exactly does it attach? I’ll have to work up to a musculature drawing… but for now the bones. The first image is more or less a trace, the skeletal is then drawn to fit that pose. There are gaps in my knowledge in filling out what isn’t in those two skull views, complicated by the different growths stages of the skull specimens.

Interesting stuff about the eyes and the nostrils, and of course that hyoid / dewlap. I’ll have to pester my friendly neighborhood scientist again.
