Abstract. As a result of the application of computer technology on the basis of the analysis of computed tomography images were created 3D-model of visceral skeleton of fish. Three-dimensional object is aligned with the modified kinematic system of four-bar mechanism, allowing to simulate and test possible movements of jaw bones.
Key word: 3D modeling, functional morphology, animation, four-bar linkage, visceral skeleton, jaw apparatus, fish.
