Dear Everyone,

As a result of difficulties accessing human tissue specimens we are
looking for an animal equivalent of human metatarsals. Specifically, we
wish to conduct in vitro deformation tests on fresh bones as closely as
possible approximating the adult human metatarsal II. Similar dimensions
(circumference, length, curvature) and the cortical thickness are the
primary characteristics required.

Does anyone have any references or experience on this topic? Any
pointers would be greatly appreciated.
