So, what IS a skeleton and what sort of animals have skeletons?
Well, first off, you're a human being and you have a skeleton. The skeleton is your body's framework that supports and protects you. Without your skeleton you would be a rather unattractive heap of mess on the floor! Believe it or not, bones are harder than concrete and longer lasting. They have to be tough and strong because they carry the weight of your body.
These pictures show the main bones of your skeleton. How many do you think there are?
Did you know an adult human has 206 bones? That's a lot of bones!
So, let's have a look at what bones and skeletons are all about.
