ALL PHOTOS ON THIS PAGE ARE OF ANIMAL BONES

In Situ bones

In situ bone

If the bone is in the ground (in situ), carefully clear the dirt around it so any identifying feature, such as the end of the bone, is visible.

Add a scale

Place an object or a ruler next to the bone to act as a 'scale' so the size of the bone can be determined from the photo. A good item would be a Sharpie or ballpoint pen.

Photo all angles

Photograph the bone and scale from a number of different angles so all sides of the bone can be viewed in the photograph. Make sure the photos are in focus.

LOOSE BONEs

Loose bone

If your bone is not in soil anymore, it is loose. Carefully clean the bone either by brushing the dirt off the bone or gently washing and drying the bone. The aim is to make sure any identifying bumps or angles are visible.

Add a scale

Place an object or a ruler next to the bone to act as a 'scale' so the size of the bone can be determined from the photo. A good item would be a Sharpie or ballpoint pen.

Photo all angles

Photograph the bone and scale from a number of different angles so all sides of the bone can be viewed in the photograph. Try to have a neutral coloured background that contrasts with the colour of the bone. Make sure the photos are in focus.
