Do dolphins have bones or cartilage?
Dolphin skeletons are not made of bones like most mammals. Instead their skeleton is made of a tough, flexible tissue called cartilage. It is the same thing that human ears are made of.
Yes whales and dolphins have bones. Whales have bones made of keratin, Dolphins have bones made of falcate.
snake bones made of cartilage
What is a difference between bone and cartilage. 1. bones are more flexible than cartilage 2. bones are harder than cartilage 3.bones are larger than cartilage?
Bones are of course harder
Cartilage is what prevents two bones from grinding together.
No. Sharks bones are made of cartilage though.
Ossification the the process that occurs when cartilage is replaced by bones!
It would be false to say membrane bones develop from hyaline cartilage structures. It is cartilage, rather than membrane bones, that comes from hyaline cartilage structures.
Dolphins have about 300 bones in their bodies.
Cartilage between the bones allows them to move easily and comfortably without the bones rubbing
Ligaments and Tendons are cartilage. Ligaments connect bones to bones and Tendons connect muscles to bones.
Cartilage is the strong, Flexible tissue that protects the ends of the bones, where they meet other bones are called "The Cartilage" hope this helps!
NO, they do not.
No cartilage in your body is a bone. Cartilage cushions bones.
BONES Actually bones start as cartilage
bones are hard, cartilage are soft and bendable , eg your ear, nose..
Cartilage is found at the ends of long bones where they meet other bones.
Cartilage has bone marrow, so therefore it connects bones to bones in the skeletal system.
Cartilage is the soft white substance that we have as bones when we are babies. Cartilage soon grows hard into bones as we grow older. The end of your nose is cartilage, the majority of your ear is cartilage as well. :)
Cartilage reduce friction between bones because without it the bones would rub against.
Cartilage cushions the joints
hyaline cartilage is present in the end of long bones.
The skeletal system consists of bones, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage.
when you are a baby the bones then were cartilage
In fully formed, non-growing bones, cartilage is found on the ends of bones where they articulate with other bones.
Would you expect to find more cartilage between your arm and should bones or between the bones of the skull?
you expect to find more cartilage between the arm and the shoulder because the cartilage is found in many bones.
No, dolphins have a bone-based skeletal system.
Yes it does because when you are small you do not have many bones to support you. Cartilage are there to support spots where bones are forming. Soon at age 60 your Cartilage will get replace.
Cartilage is at the end of long bones and is called articular cartilage because it is where the bones "articulate". Compositionally it consists of hyaline cartilage.
No, they have cartilage.....
In most cases, for adults, cartilage usually sits on ends of bones to prevent friction between other bones. -JoshuaP
There is cartilage at the ends of the bones. Some allows for free movement, some for limited movement and some for no movement.
No. The "bones" of a shark are not really bones at all. They are made of cartilage. Cartilage is found in a human's ears and nose.
Articular cartilage found at the ends of the long bones serves to
There are no bones or cartilage in an elephants trunk.
no, dolphin do not have skeleton comprised of cartilage.
the cartilage is harder than the bone
Bones cannot grow. A child's bones have more cartilage (like the stuff that makes your ears hold their shape). Cartilage can grow. As children reach their adult height bones become more bone and less cartilage.
the different between cartilage and ligaments, cartilage is basically hold the body shape such as ear with no bone. but ligaments they are joins bones to bones.
There are no bones in the nose, only a cartilage.
