Did You Know?

At birth, there are over 300 bones in the human body.  By adulthood there are only 206.

The smallest bones in the body, the anvil, stirrup and hammer, are located in the ear.

A human bone is six times stronger than a piece of steel of the same weight.

The femur by itself makes up 1/4 of the average human's height.

Humans and giraffes have the same number of bones in the neck (giraffes have longer vertebrae).

The smallest bone is the stirrup, located in the ear.  It is only slightly larger than a grain of rice.

While there are 206 bones in the body, there are 230 movable joints.

53 of the 206 bones in the body are located in the hands and feet.
