Picture replacement[edit]

Just to let everyone know - the picture on this page is not exactly great. My mom is a biology teacher. In her classroom, she has an actual human skeleton (very old - 30+ years at least). At next opporunity, I'm going to take a few pictures of it and post one here to replace it. →Raul654 16:43, Mar 11, 2004 (UTC) Questions/ Human skeleton Weight?/ Bones differences between human males?/

Clavicle[edit]

Is the clavicle part of the axial or appendicular skeleton? It's mentioned under 'shoulder girdle' and under 'chest'. I'm confused.
