We believe education is the greatest gift osteology can share and that every human specimen can contribute to the advancement of science. These specimens are provided to us by retired physicians, medical researchers, dental professionals, and former university medical programs. We also work with accredited donor programs. A small sample – often antiques that simply do not qualify for medical/research grade usage – are made available to osteology enthusiasts worldwide so that they may continue to educate and inform.
Humans are a species of primates that are known for their highly developed brain and their ability to walk upright on two legs. They have a wide range and can be found in almost every part of the world. The average length of a human is around 5-6 feet and the average weight is around 150-180 pounds. Humans have a varied diet and are omnivorous, meaning they can eat both plants and animals. Humans have a skeleton that is made up of 206 bones, which provide structure and support to the body. One interesting skeletal fact about humans is that the bones in their hands and feet contain more than half of the total number of bones in their body.
