Well, the front half anyway. In this sketch, you can see from the external basicranium (base of the skull, at the top of the page) to the eighth thoracic vertebrae (approximately half way down the trunk). The left and right scapula, and left humerus, radius and ulna (making up the forearm) are preserved, along with osteoderms and ribs. It's a rough sketch, but while drawing I'm paying close attention to bone surface modification, element orientation and absence of elements to elucidate taphonomic history.
