On occasion, Paleontologists discover fossilized skeletons that are complete, so there is no doubt how to assemble the bones. If only part of a skeleton is found, we rely on scientists who study the anatomy and physiology of modern day animals, are very familiar with how their skeletons and muscles work together. We use this knowledge about modern animals to assist us as we assemble skeletons of extinct organisms.  245k v. 2 Nov 10, 2015, 3:28 PM Kathy Blakemore
