Animal Skeletons[edit]

while the image is nice not immediately obvious that clicking on different skeletons takes you to articles, and could do with something to make this more obvious —Preceding unsigned comment added by Firebladed (talkcontribs) 12:41, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

[edit]

when you are a baby you have 305 bones but when you get older you have around 206 bones because some of your bones join toghrther —Preceding unsigned comment added by 168.212.132.70 (talk) 17:30, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Clean up[edit]

Looking for suggestions on a clean up of this article. It seems to me there is too much detail on the human skeleton and skull which should be replaced by a general summary of animal skeletons. I suggest a merge of this info into the human skeleton/skull articles and addition of the following sections: Composition, Evolution, Endoskeletons, Exoskeletons and the Human Skeleton. Maybe something on common features of animal skeletons. Any thoughts? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cubathy (talkcontribs) 14:20, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Unless there are any objections I will begin making changes along these lines over the next few days —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cubathy (talkcontribs) 04:54, 25 April 2009 (UTC)
