In the film "The Perfect Human Diet" at 32:36, a scientist points to animal remains and states "we've got a scutella of reindeer there." What is scutella in this context?


Scutella refers to shield or plate-like structure on animals (dictionary.com), such as the scutes of a turtle shell. I have never seen reference to scutes or scutella or anything similar on any type of deer, including reindeer.

I have not seen the movie so I do not know the context of usage. My gut reaction is the person was trying to make something sound important or "scientific" when a much simpler (and perhaps more accurate) word would have sufficed.
