Who needs an osteologist? (Installment 54)

Over on Instagram, biological anthropology graduate student Maya Miljević tagged me in an image from a published article, asking her followers "What's wrong in this picture? I mean, how can anyone let a photo like this be accepted in a scientific journal?"

The upside down clavicles are cliché at this point, but the backwards elbows get me every time -- I mean, how do your arms bend?

What else do you notice?
