What skeleton protects the body's vital organs?

the word skeleton is referring to all the bones in a organism. if you meant to say what *bones are covering the vital organs on a human body, there are no good answers to that question as there are multiple vital organs all over the human body, most of a humans vital organs are protected by your rip cage, which rests on your chest. but something like your brain, is protected by a skull which of course is in your head. hope this helped
