The human body has 206 bones in its skeleton, but when we are born, we have more than three hundred bones, most of which fuse together as we grow older to form the adult human skeleton. However, not all adults have the same number of bones in their body; it can vary from about two hundred to two hundred and ten.

In the same way, there may be small variations in the number of ribs a person has, or even the number of vertebrae: while most of us, both men and women, have twelve pairs of ribs, there are some people who have an extra vertebra or a rib.

The smallest bone in the human body is located in the ear, or rather, in the ear ossicles. These are the three bones that are found in the middle ear, and they are known as the 'stapes', or the 'stirrup', the 'incus' or the 'anvil', and the 'malleus' or the 'hammer'.

Answer the Stirrup. It is only 3.3 mm in length!
They are also known as the auditory ossicles. They are tiny bones in the middle ear which connect the eardrum to the inner ear. As the Ear drum vibrates, due to the vibration of the air made by sounds these little bones pass the vibration through  each other and into the Cochlea.

They form a lever system, breaking the force of sound waves and increasing the force on the inner ear. A single ossicle occurs in the ear of birds, amphibians, and reptiles.
