Bone Quiz 8

Con of dissertation data collection: I have little time or energy to write extensive posts as my post-museum diet is fueled largely by Coke Zero and María cookies.

Pro of dissertation data collection: I come across unique osteological specimens on a near-daily basis. For example, I saw this one of my first days back in the museum.

To answer the quiz, identify:

1. The bone;

2. What portion of the bone immediately strikes you as abnormal;

3. The process responsible for its appearance.

Don’t be disheartened if you can’t answer all three questions immediately. I had to do a little internet sleuthing before I figured out what was going on here.
