Who needs an osteologist? (Installment 44)

Today's installment of "Who needs an osteologist?" comes courtesy bioarchaeologist Megan Perry, who was watching a Science Channel clip on the skeletons found in the Pyramid of the Feathered Serpent at Teotihuacan.

Here's the clip: (if the embedded YouTube video doesn't work for you, this one might)


So, what did you notice? I rolled my eyes at the radii, which were upside down when being held, and the os coxae, which are mis-sided. 


Then raised my eyebrows at the overabundance of lumbar vertebrae. 


Then heaved a deep sigh for the incorrectly placed clavicles. 


Anything else I'm missing? Pretty sure those humeri have issues. And the foot bones. But it's hard to tell in the video...
