The adult human body has 206 bones.An infant may have from 300-305 bones at birth.Some of these fuse together as the infant grows.When some bones fuse and become one bone (most obvious examples are in the skull,sacrum and hip bones)the number of overall bones drops to the 206 bones that most adults have.
Of the 206 bones in the adult human body,more than half(106)are there in the hands and feet.
