The axis bone, also known as the epistropheus, is the basis of the neck’s rotation. It sits below the atlas bone and is considered part of the cervical region of the spine. The atlas is a ring-shaped bone that sits at the top of the spine. It is named for the Greek Titan, Atlas because the globe of the skull rests on this bone, as the world rested on Atlas’s shoulders. Due to skeletal variation, each atlas and axis set sold will differ in size, shape, and patina. These bones are sold as a pair.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about JonsBones & look forward to a lifetime relationship with them.
“I met Jon a little over a year ago and found him to be incredibly knowledgeable, communicative and super nice. Thus far I have purchased two skulls from him and more vertebra than I can count. His blogs on different topics in osteology are informative and I look forward to seeing the updates on his website when new products are added…”
Reasonably priced and very good quality is a hard combination to beat!
I heard about Jonsbones at an advanced K9 HRD seminar so decided to give them a try. Jon offered personalized service that made the ordering process quick and simple. As for the quality of the training aids, all I can say is that even our beginner K9 had no issue in finding the correct location. I highly recommend Jonsbones as your go to place to get your bones from...
JonsBones was so helpful for me when I was first starting my collection and I could not be more grateful!
Jon's selection is incredible, and his prices are fair. When I told him I was looking for a skull, he personally worked with me to find the right piece for my budget and my needs. JonsBones was so helpful for me when I was first starting my collection, and I could not be more grateful!
