Do Cartilaginous Skeletons Use the 'bone' Annotation?

Just as it says: If an organism is deceased and the evidence of presence is cartilaginous skeleton, do we use the ‘bone’ annotation?

The provided definition for the annotation is:

Predominantly endoskeletal remains; partial bone exposure in an otherwise
intact organism should be labelled organism.

Cartilage is a endoskeletal tissue, so it is appropriate to annotate such observations as “bone”.


Thank you! Where do you see these descriptions? Those seem useful

Oh on the website as opposed to the app. That makes sense, thanks. Happy to let this close now. Thanks again!
