depends what kind of animal you're comparing human skeletons with. well for the obvious kinds, the hand bones and leg bones differ, hip bones as well, and of course our skulls have several differences as well, in jaw size and structure as well as in skull shape and size (even when you compare it to gorillas or chimps, although sometimes it can be mistaken for them too)

the bones of a human and an amimal are similar because they all share the same bone. The only difference is that these bones have adapted and changed over time to meet the animals needs.

example: the bones in a human hand have changed into the form of a flipper for a seal. Even though seals have flippers, if you removed the flesh, it would look very similar to a human hand with five fingers, metacarples, and carples.

Genetic inheritance.

Actually the biggest differences is the articulation - how the joints work together. The bones of an animal can be matched almost one for one with humans.
