Bone, also called osseous tissue is a type of hard endoskeletal connective tissue found in many vertebrate animals.
Bones support body structures, protect internal organs, and (in conjunction with muscles) facilitate movement; are also involved with cell formation, calcium metabolism, and mineral storage.
The bones of an animal are, collectively, known as the skeleton.
