Basilisk skeleton

The Serpent of Slytherin, reduced to mere bones by 1998

"Big bones... the only thing that's got bigger bones than her is a dinosaur."
—Harry Potter makes light of Olympe Maxime's insinuation that she isn't a half-giant.[src]

Bones are a hard structure that make up the skeleton of vertebrate organisms. They provide structure and protection for the body's other organs, and are responsible for the production of blood, among other, more minor uses. In the wizarding world, bones have a variety of uses.
