This mount shows the life position of the furcula and scapulae-coracoids. The right scapula-coracoid exhibits an extreme pathology. The scapula was shattered probably due to a fall. Infection grew in the shattered bone, which eventually re-fused with the coracoid. The resulting spongy bone caused the scapula to grow more than twice the diameter of its healthy counterpart - a chronic case of osteomyelitis. The infection would have persisted for years and was active until its death.
This replica offers a quick comparison between the pathological scapula-coracoid and the healthy one.
Available as an unpainted, unmounted cast suitable for some research or reference purposes. Note: some portions of the original fossil may have been scientifically restored.
