    Height based on femur length?

    Does anyone know of a website where estimated height can be calculated by femur length?

    Thank you. I was curious because our local news reported bones washing up on Pensacola Beach (2 11" femurs and a partial collarbone). They have since reported that the bones were identified as not being human bones. The storms in the Gulf of Mexico have been causing all kinds of things to wash up.
