|BUILDING BEAR BONES ~ Vol. 7
A Guide to Preparing and Assembling a Bear Skeleton or Plantigrade Possibilities
|Not a lot of people are going to be articulating bear
skeletons, but if you were ~ this is the manual you would
want. Bear skeletons are fascinating because the anatomy of
a standing bear is so similar to our own. The skinned-out
hands and feet are sometimes turned in as homicide remains.
This manual has detailed illustrations of bear bones,
including all the carpals, and tarsals from the hands and feet.
This is the step by step process once used by a grade school
to do a museum quality skeletal mount of a bear.

|TO OUR MANUAL USERS AND POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS
Our manuals are the most expensive bone-building books in all of Homer. And now they are even more expensive. Effective
January 2015, all manuals went up $5 . . . Over the 12 years since the manuals first started coming out, they have remained at
the original published price. Over the years we have added more and more pages, more illustrations and more information -
and we'll continue doing so. Meanwhile, printing and shipping costs have gone up to the point where we are forced to raise
prices. Please keep in mind that these manuals are printed in very small press runs by a local printing shop - no cheap
overseas printing happening here - and they still come with an invitation to send an email to me for
personal assistance if you get stuck or have any questions or comments.
Happy Bone Building,
Lee and Mary
