I guess that makes sense. If you were quadrapedaling, you palms
would be down making the top side of the forearms be the ventral side.

Whatever it is, it seems to have a structure. The thin surface
layer then another layer, thicker on the ventral, thinner on the dorsal

if it has diagrams of fat layers.
