Answer: The adult human body has 206 bones. They range in size from the tiniest found in the middle ear, to the largest that forms our thigh. Of the 206 bones in the adult human body, more than half (106) are in the hands and feet. The number of bones in the skeleton changes with age, a process which typically reaches completion in the third decade of life. An infant may have from 300-350 bones at birth. Many of these fuse together as the infant grows. When these bones fuse and become one bone, the number of overall bones drops to the 206 bones.

Ans: 206 bones
