pelvis

The pelvis is made up of two halves, which are spoon shaped. The pelvis is often mistaken for a skull as the hip sockets look a bit like eye sockets. The pelvis is strongly fixed to the spine at the back (top side) of an animal. The two halves of the pelvis meet at the front (underside) of the animal. Female animals give birth to their young through the birth canal that runs through the pelvis..
