Coccygeal vertebrae have the following features

  •                      They are fused to form a thin triangular bone

  •                      The segments taper into small nodules at the tip of the coccyx

  •                      The coccyx does not have any recognizable feature found in other vertebrae because of advance fusion and degeneration during embryological development.
