"The world dies over and over again, but the skeleton always gets up and walks." - Henry Miller 

It's time for an anatomy quiz, and today, it's the human skeletal system. Do you know everything there is to know about the human skeleton? Could you pass this quiz with ease? Here's your chance to find out!

The human skeletal system is the basic framework for your body. It determines how you stand, produces important cells for the body and protects parts of the internal anatomy from external blows. Without it, you would be a sack of meat on the ground, unable to walk or move. That doesn't sound like a very enjoyable life. Therefore, it's important to know about the human skeletal system; its functions, weaknesses and strengths. 

But, are you an expert on the human body and all of its functions, including those of the human skeletal system? Do you know which bones are located where or how many are in different parts of the body? Do you know how bones are built or heal after damage? 

If you think you know everything about the skeletal system, take this quiz and prove it. You had better be up for a challenge, though, because this quiz isn't easy!
