Skeletons - Bone Builders' Babies

Skeletons and more skeletons from those who have articulated their bone babies. If you have an articulated skeleton and would like to share it with the universe, please email a picture of it to me at boneman@xyz.net and Mary (my accomplice) will add it to the Bone Builders' Babies Page.
​                                                                                               Happy Bone Building! Lee

Babies from 2005 to 2020 (WOW! That's a lot of years!)

Most current photos will now be at the top.

If you have submitted a photo to be included on this page but don't see it here (for which I humbly apologize!), PLEASE let us know by re-sending the photo with your name, where you are from and the name of the species of skeleton you put together. 

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR WONDERFUL CONTRIBUTIONS
