Bleached Exoskeleton of an invasive crawdad (crayfish).
Hi NickIrvine1,Would you mind removing your crayfish from the Osteology mission?! Osteology is actually the study of vertebrate bones. It's a detailed study of the structure of bones, the skeletal elements, teeth, morphology, function and disease. Osteology aids in identifying vertebrate remains with regard to age, death, sex, growth, and development. Crayfish are invertebrates and have an exoskeleton rather than a true skeleton. Thank you for your understanding! :)
