38. LOL...are vertebrae decorative?
I use them in my Native American art. I top my walking sticks with cow vertebrae. Someday I should take a picture of them to share.

When I lived in Tuolumne I had a back yard. Yes, I actually lived in a house! I bought some old cow bones from a guy and put them in a bucket to bleach and clean. They were yellowish until I added some laundry detergent. Bleach and laundry detergent turn bones white, white, white! A properly decorated vertebrae makes an excellent objet dart.

P.S. I'd love to have a fossil cave bear skull! Oh, and a reproduction of a Utahraptor claw...KICK ASS!
