The adult human skeletal system consists of 206 bones, as well as a network of tendons, ligaments, and cartilage that connects them. The skeletal system has two distinct parts. The axial skeleton totals 80 bones, consisting of the vertebral column, the rib cage, and the skull. The appendicular skeleton totals 126 bones, consisting of the pectoral girdles, the upper limbs, the pelvic girdle, and the lower limbs. The following diagram of the skeletal system is an anterior view skeletal diagram showing the frontal view of the human skeleton.
The functions of the skeleton are to provide support, protection to other systems and organs of the body, attachments for muscles, to produce movement and to produce red blood cell, and give our bodies shape. There are many different types of skeletal diagrams. These include complete skeletal diagrams of the anterior, posterior or lateral view, or more detailed views of specific groupings of bones such as the pelvis, head, rib cage or spine.
These skeletal system diagrams are illustrations of the human skeleton that can be used for educational purposes. These can also be used for display purposes in doctors’ offices or as part of a presentation. Click on the image to download and print a diagram of the human skeleton!
