Condyle is a rounded prominence at the end of a bone, most often used for articulation with another bone.

Condyles can be found in numorous places in the body example:


TMJ ( Temporomandibular Joint/ aka Jaw)

Vertebral Column

In short, they can be found in both the axial and appendicular skeleton.

These are slightly movable joints and found in the axial skeleton (skull and trunk).These joints are not only found in the axial skeleton, as the Middle Radioulnar joint located in the forearm between the ulna and radius is classified as an amphiarthrotic functioning joint. and is located on the appendicular skeleton.

The hyoid bone is the only bone of the axial skeleton that does not articulate with the other bones.

The only joints joining the upper extremities to the axial skeleton are the acromioclavicular joints, a joint between the acromion on the scapula and the clavicle.

A museum, perhaps... but only the skeleton. They are extinct.

The hyoid bone does not articulate with any other bone. It is suspended by muscles and ligaments.

There has only been one Saltopus skeleton every found.... and it was only part of a skeleton. it is questionable... believe whatever you think it is.

There is only one vertebrae that is considered the axis and that is cervical vertebrae number 2 (C2). The axial skeleton is composed of the skull, facial bones, hyoid bone, the vertebrae, sacrum, and coccyx.

Because it is the only bone in the human body that isn't articulated to any other bone but is merely suspended in place by muscles and ligaments

Nowhere. only skeleton remains can be found at some science laboratories and museums.

It is the only bone in the pectoral girdle (humerus, scapula, clavicle) which attaches to the axial skeleton. Your arm is held onto the rest of the skeletal system by the clavicles attachment, ligaments and muscles.

There are not many differences, since both are vertebrate animals. The only difference may be found in the hands and feet. Humans have five fingers and toes while frogs only have four.

They only replace one of the condyles in the knee, typically the medial condyle, if it has damaged cartilage.

No, seasons are produced by axial tilt. Europa has an axial tilt of only 0.1 degrees, which is not enough for seasons.

Richard Markgraf discovered a partial skeleton of Spinosaurus at the Bahariya Formation in Egypt in 1912. Since then, Spinosaurus fossils have been found not only in Egypt but also in Morocco.

The bony plates that make up a starfish's skeleton is the ossicles. They are found in not only starfish but sea cucumbers and sea urchins also.

the thoraric cage is part of axial skeleton which is protects and covers our internal organs of our body. Wherein, the arm is part of appendicular skeleton that is freely movable joints and it's made of long bones. Only the pectoral girdle who can contributed why the arm and thorax had a relationships.

The humerus. The shoulder girdle consists of the clavicle (or collarbone), the scapula (or shoulder blades) and the humerus. The humerus is only attached to the body via the scapula, clavicle and muscles. Nothing direct.

For the most part yes. The only part of the axial skeleton it is in contact with is the sacrum and coccyx. But is it also attached to the iliac crest which is appendicular and its main action is extension and lateral rotation of the thigh.

Every human has only one skeleton.

bar can take axial loading only and beam can take both axial loading and transverse loading

Yes, there is fluid pressure in the skeleton. However, fluid pressure is only in the exoskeleton, not the internal skeleton.

yes, and the only axial-appendicular joint is the sternoclavicular joint, which is right between clavicle and manubrium (part of the sternum). XD

Sue was found in an archaeological dig site. The archaeologists found almost all of her skeleton, with only a few bones missing. However, without her tendons and ligaments, her head was too heavy to be put on the actual skeleton itself so it is in a glass display box at the Chicago Field Museum. The skull on the assembled skeleton is fake, along with the other missing bones.

Only the teeth are found , because a sharks skeleton is made out of cartilage. This results in poor to no fossilization of their skeletons and therefore is rarely found. I hope this is a sufficient answer.

yes, your skeleton system is made of bones.
