Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of cancellous (spongy) bone of the human shin. Bone tissue is either compact or cancellous. Compact bone usually makes up the exterior of the bone, while cancellous bone is found in the interior. Cancellous bone is characterised by a honeycomb arrangement of trabeculae. These structures help to provide support and strength. The spaces within this tissue normally contain bone marrow, a blood forming substance. Credit: SCIENCE SOURCE/SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY

BONE ➡ Rigid organs that constitute part of endoskeleton of vertebrates. SUPPORT & PROTECT the various organs of the body. PRODUCE RBC's & WBC's & store minerals. Bone tissue is a type of dense connective tissue. BONE TISSUE ➡ Osseous, Marrow, Endosteum, Periosteum, Nerves, Blood Vessels& Cartilage. Osseous Tissue, aka - bone tissue gives it rigidity & a coral-like 3D internal structure. Adults: 206 separate bones > At birth: 270 bones. Largest Bone = Femur Smallest Bones = Auditory Ossicles
