Bone tissue is found all over the body. The skull or cranium is bone tissue, it protects the brain. The vertebral column is bone tissue and it protects the spinal cord. The adult skeleton contains 204 or 206 bones (depending on the book). A few examples of bones or bone tissue are the clavicles (bilateral collarbones), the acromium process of the shoulder or pectoral girdle, the humerus (upper arm), the radius (lateral), and ulna (medial) of the forearm (between the elbow and wrist).

Lower extremity examples could include the ischium of the hips, the femurs bilaterally (large bone of the thigh), the patella or kneecap, the tibia's (medial lower leg), and the fibula's (lateral lower leg). The tarsals of the ankle, the metatarsal's of the feet, and the phalanges of the toes.
