The Vertebrae is an item that was added in the 1.2 update. Its only known uses are to craft Bloody Spines in order to summon the Brain of Cthulhu, and as an alternative for Rotten Chunks to craft the Mechanical Worm and the Battle Potion.

Vertebrae Farm

It's easy to farm hundreds of Vertebrae in pre-hardmode world with simple lava trap system. Lava Bucket and any solid blocks are essential, wire system with actuators for more comfortable farming are optional. Make sure you have Water Candle in your hand and a few Battle Potions to maximize enemy spawn rate. Note that this tactic can be applied anywhere, although biomes with enemies able to penetrate through walls (e.g.: Dungeon, Underworld, etc.) might be risky.
