The Skeletal System
The skeletal system is made up of 206 bones in and during adulthood. These 206 bones are divided up into two major regions: the axial skeleton, and the appendicular skeleton. The axial skeleton runs along the body's midline, and consists of 80 bones in the skull, hyoid, auditory ossicles, rib, sternum, and vertebral column regions. The appendicular skeleton consists of 126 bones on the upper and lower limbs, the pelvic girdle, and the pectoral (shoulder) regions.
