The talus is an architectural feature of some late medieval castles, especially prevalent in crusader constructions.
Litters are born in the talus (rock piles) and weaned at 3-4 weeks after birth.
Rain cascades down glacier carved valleys, gathering with the steady, icy melt to roam through the talus and house-sized boulders.
The tarsal tunnel, which is located on the medial aspect of the posterior heel, is bounded by the flexor retinaculum and the medial surfaces of the talus and calcaneus.
