The human body has a total of 206 bones. When a baby is born, their bodies contain over 300 bones. As the baby grows with time, the bones begin to join together in a process called ossification. At the end of the ossification process, the baby will have formed stronger bones and as a result a smaller amount of bones, 206 to be exact.

 206 bones.

ssandhu05 | Student

At birth, a baby's body is consisted of 270 bones. These bones are all fragmented, and as the human body ages, grows, and becomes more mature, the bones fuse together. This results in their being less bones in the overall body. The number of bones that one has after all the bone fusions is 206.

When a baby is born is contains 300 bones that are soft also known as cartilage. As the baby grows his bones fuse or join together slowly and gradually to form strong bones, this process is referred to as ossification. Bones join together till there are 207 bones left in the body. 

As for the answer to your question, the human body consists of 207 bones on which the body's structure is based upon.

The human body has 206 bones. There are five types of bones: long, short, flat, irregular, and sesamoid. The bone's main function is to support our body and protect our organs as well as enable us to move. Bones also store essential substances, such as calcium, to help our bodies grow and repair itself.

I'm taking an anatomy class this summer and there are way too many bones for my liking. Essentially in an adult, we would have 206 individual bones in the body. Whereas an infant child would have approximately 300 different bones. The reason as to why the children lose around 100 of these bones is because as they grow up, the bones begin to fuse and some turn into cartilage.

The skeleton of an adult human is made up of 206 bones of many different shapes and sizes. Added together, your bones make up about 15% of your body weight. Newborn babies are actually born with many more bones than this (around 300), but many bones grow together, or fuse, as babies become older. Some bones are long and thick, like your thigh bones. Others are thin, flat, and wide, like your shoulder blades

The adult human body has 206 bones. An infant may have from 300-350 bones at birth. Some of these fuse together as the infant grows. When some bones fuse and become one bone (most obvious examples are in the skull, sacrum and hip bones) the number of overall bones drops to the 206 bones that most adults have. 

Of the 206 bones in the adult human body, more than half (106) are in the hands and feet. The adult skeleton consists of the following bones:

  • 28 skull bones (8 cranial, 14 facial, and 6 ear bones)
  • The horseshoe-shaped hyoid bone of the neck which is the only bone that does not articulate (connect via a joint) to another bone 
  • 26 vertebrae (7 cervical or neck; 12 thoracic; 5 lumbar or loins; the sacrum, which is five fused vertebrae; and the coccyx, which is four fused vertebrae)
  • 24 ribs plus the sternum or breastbone; the shoulder girdle (2 clavicles, the most frequently fractured bones in the body, and 2 scapulae)
  • the pelvic bones (3 fused bones called the coxal bone, or Os Coxae)
  • 30 bones in each of the arms and legs (a total of 120)
  • a few partial bones, ranging from 8-18 in number, which are related to joints


There are individual variations: for example, some people are born with an extra rib or lumbar vertebra and not everyone has Inca (sutural) bones. 

Some interesting facts:

  • The hand has 27 bones, the foot has 26 and the face has 14. 
  • The longest bone in your body, the femur (thigh bone), is about 1/4 of your height. The smallest is the stapes (or stirrup) in the ear which is about 1/10 of an inch. 
  • Humans and giraffes have the same number of bones in their necks.
  • Most of the bones in the body are in the hands and feet.

It matters of how old you are. Your bones are always growing, and every seven years one of it's growing stages are complete. But it stops growing at a sudden time.. While the adult skeleton contains 206 bones, the skeleton of an infant contains 350 (the bones fuse together as you grow). And more than half of your 206 bones are found in your hands and feet.

bessnaka | Student

There are 206 bones in adults.

However, in infants and childrens there are many more but as they grow their bones fuse together, hense decreasing the number of bones over  maturation.   Babies have over 300 bones.  For example in a young child's cranium there are "floating plates" which are held together by muscle and cranial sutures.  As they mature, the sutures fuse together.  In an old person the plates no longer "float" but are totally fused together and one can only see the zig zag lines on the surface of an old person's skull.

Another example of bones fusing together are long bones such as the femur or humerus bones.  The epiphysis or ends of the bones are fairly solid bone in a child and the diaphysis (shaft) have not yet fused to the epiphysis.  Long bones stop growing in puberty.

A fetus is made up of cartilage and therefore it is difficult to determine the exact number of bones.  Hence babies are more cartilage than bone.  The process of converting cartilage to bone is called ossification.

Humans are born with about 300 to 350 bones. Many of these bones fuse together between birth and maturity to produce an average adult total of 208 bones. The number of bones in the human body varies according to the counting method used. While some methods consider a given structure to be a single bone with multiple parts, others consider the same structure to be multiple bones.

Location Number Skull 22 Ears (pair) 6 Vertebrae 26 Vertebral ribs 24 Sternum 3 Throat 1 Pectoral girdle 4 Arms (pair) 60 Hip bones 2 Legs (pair) 60 Total 208
