To view the images in this site with the size, color accuracy and balance as they were intended, you will need to make the following adjustments to your monitor:
These adjustments can usually be accessed from the "menu" button on the front of your monitor. Due to differences in manufacturing tolerances and makes of monitors, there still may be some inaccuracy in image parameters. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT IF YOU DO NOT MAKE THESE ADJUSTMENTS, THERE MAY BE CONSIDERABLE ERROR IN COLOR BALANCE, SATURATION, DETAIL AND SIZE OF THESE IMAGES. Unless otherwise specified, the images are lifesize (1:1) ratio with respect to the actual specimen. This has been done to allow comparison of relative sizes among various species, as would be the case when viewing an actual collection.
