Axial vs. Appendicular Skeleton

  • The axial skeleton consists of the skull, rib cage, and vertebral (脊椎) column
  • The appendicular skeleton consists of the pectoral girdle (胸带), upper limb bones, pelvic girdle (骨盆带), and lower limb bones

Classification of Bones by Shape

  • Irregular bones have unique shapes
  • Sesamoid (芝麻样) bones develop in tendons (肌腱) and are shaped like seeds
