Achondroplasia


On an early Sunday morning, me and my team of archeologists set out to dig on what was believed to be an ancients Indian burial ground. We had our digging perimeter marked off with a grid. As we were digging me and my team came across a few skeletons. As we continued to dig and get a full view of all of the bones we discovered that one of the skeletons had achondroplasia, also known as a midget. The abnormal body proportions, immediately gave it away. The legs and arms were very short while the torso remained normal size.
Achrondoplasia is a genetic condition that results in abnormals short sature.
