the foramen magnum? What is another name for the collar bone? Shoulder blade? Shin bone? Knee cap? Know why
ribs are attached by cartilage. How many ribs do males and females have? Why are more injuries seen in the cervical or
lumbar regions? What teeth are absent in horses and sheep? Why do birds and mammals have a hard palate? How can
you tell if an animal is bipedal? What does the position of the orbit tell you about an animal’s lifestyle?
