A three-dimensional model of the rat hindlimb is presented. Using the anatomical data of the Wistar rat published previously (Green, 1935), a 3D representation of 34 muscles of the hindlimb was drawn. Two models were created, one using muscle like appearances and one using different colors. Each muscle can be viewed separately or within the context of its synergistic and antagonistic muscles. This model can serve to train new students before starting their experiments, but also for producing illustrations of experimental conditions or results.
