Abstract : Knowledge of anthropometric parameters of a group of American born Macaca mulatta became necessary for hardware design in the course of an orbiting primate experiment. The values obtained for 35 anthropometric parameters on 23 immature laboratory-born monkeys are presented. These parameters are classified according to age and sex of the animals and graded as to their reliability and reporducibility. The data can serve as baselines for extensive body measurements of the American born rhesus monkeys and can be useful any time these monkeys are used in experimental procedures. (Author)
