A creature approaching a skeleton.

Skeletons (often called "fossils", "skeletal fossils", or "bone piles") are interactable objects that contain creature parts in the Creature Stage. If the player clicks on a pile, their creature will use its graspers (mouth or foot if it doesn't have any) to dig it up. They will give different creature parts depending on their size; larger piles corresponding to higher levels of parts. skeletons, especially big ones, are often found near hostile creatures' nests.

  • Level 1 skeletons mostly consist of a partial ribcage, a broken spine, and two humeri. They can be found anywhere, including low-level creatures' nests.
  • Level 2 skeletons resemble ribcages. Like Level 1 skeletons, they can be found anywhere.
  • Level 3 skeletons also resemble ribcages, but are larger than Level 2 skeletons and are mostly above ground. Lots of them can be often found near the player after migration.
  • Level 4 skeletons consist of a fully-exposed ribcage and a skull with a Slagjawed mouth. These contain mostly the highest level of parts. The most noticeable areas to find these skeletons are always near an epic creature.

Spore Galactic Adventures Edit

In Spore Galactic Adventures, skeletons can be added to adventures as props or decorative objects from the "Static Ornaments" folder. These props come in five varieties: Skeleton Cluster, Skeleton Ribcage, Skeleton Spine, Skeleton Fish, and Skeleton Skull.
