Q:
How many bones in the human body?
A:

There are 206 bones in an adult human skeleton, but the skeleton of an infant contains 350 (the extra bones fuse together as you grow).


There are two skeletal systems in our body, the axial skeleton (the trunk of our body) and the appendicular skeleton (our limbs). The bones themselves are divided up into four classes: short bones (bones that strengthen our skeleton), long bones (bones that make up the limbs), flat bones (bones that help protect our body and provide a place for muscles to attach), and irregular bones (bones which are oddly shaped and that don’t fit into any of the other three categories). On a side note, more than half of your 206 bones are found in your hands and feet.
