The axial skeleton is made of the bones along the middle axis of the creature. The bones consituting the axial skeleton are the bones in the skull, middle ear, throat, rib cage, sternum, and spine.

The central portion of the skeleton is the axial skeleton.

They are the two divisions of the skeletal system. The axial consists of the skull, vertebral column, sacrum, coccyx, ribs, and sternum. And, the appendicular skeletal system is composed of the bones of the arms and legs.the appendicular skeleton is the limbs and limb girdles that are attached to the axial skeleton and the axial skeleton is the head and trunk.

the axial and appendicular skeleton

Skeletal is an adjective related to the word skeleton. Adjectives describing a skeleton include bony, axial, appendicular, and grinning.

The 2 main parts of the skeletal system are the axial and the appendicular skeleton.

No, they are not. They are part of the appendicular skeletal system.

The skeletal system supports your body and its major parts are the patella the ulna and the clavicle.

First axial skeleton is made up of 80 bone The main bones of axial skeleton are Hyoid Auditory ossicles Skull ribs and sternum Vertebral column

The axial skeleton is made up of five mainparts. This is the skull, the ossicles of the inner ear, the hyoied bone (I don't know the accurate spelling) of the throat, the rib cage and the vertebral column. If we put the axial skeleton and the appendicular skeleton together, it would form the full human skeleton. //

The axial skeleton contains the skull, spine, and ribs.

yes it IS part of the axial skeleton :) Yes it is part of the axial skeleton

Axial Skeleton: includes the head, neck, and trunk Appendicular Skeleton: upper and lower limbs

An axis is what something else turns around, and an appendix is something added on. The axial skeleton is the one in the center of the body that other things turn around, and the appendicular skeleton is the parts that have been added to the axial skeleton.

The axial and appendicular are the two divisions in the skeletal system. The axial skeleton consists of bones that form the axis of the body and support and protect the organs of the head, neck, and trunk the skull, the sternum, the ribs, the vertebral column The appendicular skeleton is composed of bones that anchor the appendages to the axial skeleton. The upper and lower extremities, the shoulder girdle, the pelvic girdle

the extremities are part of the axial skeleton

Axial skeleton - is made up of bones of the skul, ribs, and the vertebrae. Appendicular skeleton - includes all the bones attached to the axial skeleton.

the axial skeleton is your head and torso the appendicular skeleton is your arms and legs

The skeletal system includes the axial skeleton (Skull, Vertebrae, Sternum, Ribcage), and the appendicular skeleton (all else, including the arms, the legs, the pelvis, the shoulders, the fingers, and the toes.)

Our skeletal system is divided into two sections: Axial and Appendicular. Our appendicular skeleton is the limbs attached to our axial skeleton. Our axial skeleton consists of 80 bones out of the 206, where as our appendicular contains 126. Our axial skeleton provides protection to our vital organs and brain. Our appendicular skeleton creates movement. Our axial skeleton is the middle section such as the cranium, thoracic cage, and vertebral column Our appendicular skeleton is the limbs that hang off our axial skeleton such as the arms and legs Axial Skeleton - forms the longitudinal axis of the body, it has 80 bones, roughly 40% of the bones in the human body. Components of the axial skeleton : -The skull (8 cranial bones and 14 facial bones) -Bone assoicated with the skill (6 auditory ossicles and the hyoid bone) -The thoracic cage (the sternum and 24 ribs) -The vertebral column (24 vertebrae, the sacrum, and the coccyx) Appendicular Skeleton The appendicular skeleton is the peripheral skeletal structure that includes arms, legs, pelvis (excluding the sacrum), and shoulder. It too, like the axial skeleton, is primarily comprised of bones and is held together with ligaments, with cartilage as the connective tissue that performs various functions essentially relating to making the joints run smoother.

The Femur is part of the appendicular skeleton, not the axial.
