It doesn't look too much like a reptile to me. Maybe a bird, or fish?

Thanks for the comments. It never occured to me that it might be a bird. I think its straightness sent me dowm a more reptilian path though I hsve no idea what a reptiles skelton would look like. Now you have said bird it makes a lot more sense. It is ceratinly full of holes and very light Thank You.
