Scirus carolinensis and Sciurus vulgaris left pelvic bones
Sciurus carolinensis (right) and Sciurus vulgaris (left) left pelvic bones. This P shaped orientation is that in which single pelvic bones are normally depicted in (for example) Lawrence and Brown (1973) but this is what I normally think of as being 'upside down' in that this shows a ventral aspect and if one views the entire mammal in this aspect then the head would point to the foot of the picture and the tail to the top. Hence when photographing the pelvic bones with accompanying femurs or other bones, I tend to arrange them in lower case b and d aspect, as seen in the other photos in this album.
