Figure 2

Normal head muscles of newborn lambs, as seen in ‘myological mild stage 2’. The typical configuration of more superficial (A) and deep (B) facial and masticatory muscles, as well as of extraocular muscles of the left eye (C,D) of the mildly defective myological stage 2 newborn lambs dissected by us is basically similar to the normal newborn lamb myological phenotype (paper square = 1 cm). That is, basically the face/snout is slightly truncated, but all the head muscles are present and have a mainly normal configuration, as shown here in specimens 12 L (A,C) and 16 L (B,D). For more details see text and SI1 Table 1.
