Bones. The skeleton is the hard tissue that supports the body's structure. Humans have about 206 bones, from the femur (the largest and strongest) to the inner ear bones (incus, malleus and stapes, the smallest). They protect the internal organs ( heart lungs, liver etc. ) and give a base for muscle attachment.
It is made of bones!
