Alyssa’s skeleton- updated

Since I traded spines with Leah, found the small bones that attach near the patella (kneecap), and I learned more about how deer have an extra bone that attaches to the radius. Humans don’t have that. Also, after talking to my mom, I don’t think you can die from scoliosis, if it so severe and goes untreated (deers usually go untreated since they don’t have doctors in the wild) so Alyssa suffered from scoliosis, but probably died because her femurs are broken near the tips making it hard and very painful to walk.

Also, the reason for the pink bone in the picture is because when Leah and I get bored we paint our bones, and that bone is closest to fitting in that spot, so I kept it there even though it looks so out of place! You can tell that the 4 bones near the skull don’t go with her spine. Again, keeping it there makes it look good! I’m pretty sure those bones go with Leah’s spine. But I don’t want to give it to her evil laugh!

    The pink bone looks like a baton so it seems like Alyssa will just get up and start directing a symphony at any moment.

    Cool blog ! I like the skeleton. (The femurs are the wrong way round, though, but you probably knew that).

    Very impressive! I never tried to put a skeleton togheter.

    • it’s so much fun, but really hard to get even the tiniest of bones together. And since there are about 4-5 different deer that have died, and like 4 raccoons, it’s hard to tell which ones go where.
