Beautiful photo, Don.


Who can guess what this is?



Is it a embryo?

Guys, just pretend it's bone!

You could stand this up in your living room I suppose... But it's not a mundane household item.

It's not a necklace.

You could call it a model I suppose...

The thing in the image is part of a complete object about 50cm high x 50 cm long, or less

No. The "bone" hasn't been made into anything.

So basically all that it is is a pile of 'bones' moulded into something?

Not exactly... What structural form do the bones from an animal normally take?

So this is part of a skeleton and we must identify either the part or the animal?

Don is correct, this is part of a skeleton. You need to tell me which part, AND what the skeleton belonged to :D

Lets just re-cap here.

It's part of a skeleton (or model of a skeleton) which is 50cms high and under 50cms long.
It is not that of a mammal nor exoskeleton of an insect.

Would it be avian?

It's in the class Aves, but it's not a modern bird.

Karen, good guess - part of the jaw is in the photo!

Can anyone guess which animal it is?
