About this book

This is the manual you want if you are contemplating a skeleton articulation project of a moose or any other large hoofed, four-legged mammal (including cow, horse, caribou, buffalo, deer, elk, and wildebeest). It goes from the cleaning of the bones to the display of the finished skeleton in steps that even students can follow.

Biography

A thirty-year veteran of bone-building, Lee Post's interest in building skeletons started when The Pratt Museum in the Alaskan town of Homer acquired a 17-foot beaked whale that the staff had collected and cleaned. This led to fifteen years of building up the osteology collection at the museum by salvaging, preparing, and often articulating animal skeletons.

In the mid-'90s, came a three-year high school/museum collaborative project in which Post worked with high school students on first articulating a 41-foot Sperm Whale skeleton they had collected and cleaned, then half a dozen other skeletons. Since that project, his focus has been working mostly with schools and students and creating written manuals that can help others who might want to do similar projects.
