A bone pathology refers to abnormalities in bone growth or healing from injury or disease. Such abnormalities (pathologies) are not limited to modern or living animals and are also found in the fossil record. Finding bone pathologies in the fossil record are rare.
The replica specimen presented here shows how injury or disease affected the normal growth of the bone. Note the very rough texture of the bone which had healed from disease. It is fascinating to see how the animal reacted to the injury or disease and to speculate if it ultimately led to the animal’s death.
NOTE: This specimen comes with chevrons detached for safe shipping. They may be glued back on with any form of fast drying super glue. Match the “A” on the bone with “A” on the chevron and “B” on the bone with “B” on the chevron and the arrows.
NOTE: This is not a stock item and is made on demand. Allow 3 weeks for delivery.
