How to use "Skeletons" in context?

Skeletons are evolutionary remains of once living organisms. They are the remains of animals that have been completely skeletonized, meaning that the flesh and muscle have been removed, leaving only the bones. While skeletons are found in all sorts of different locations â€" on land, in water, and in the air â€" they are most commonly found in archaeological sites, such as ancient burial grounds.

Skeletons are fascinating specimens because they preserve a record of the way that different species of animals have evolved.
