1- Measurements taken from the CT scanned Xenarthra specimens. 2- Logarithmic values (log10) of Body Mass and Brain Volume


Steps to reproduce

We scanned and generated 3D models of intracranial structures of Xenarthra specimens, reconstruct the internal structures, measurements (mm) of brain structures were taken using the software tools for 3D image measurement. The method for measuring the 3D models follows Macrini et al. (2006), Macrini et al. (2007a), and Macrini et al. (2007b). The second supplementary data represents endocranial measurements of animals available in the literature and their respective reference.
