8 Exploded human skull

By Shofia

Did you know that the human baby’s skull contains 44 bones?! By the time we are adults they have fused, which means joined together, so there are 22 bones. The largest bits of the exploded pieces are called parietal bone (the back), occipital bone (the back bit at the bottom), the mandible bone (the jaw) and the frontal bone (the forehead).
மனித மண்டையில் 44 எலும்புகள் பிறக்கும்போது இருப்பது உங்களுக்குத் தெரியுமா ?! நாங்கள் பெரியவர்களாக இருக்கும் நேரத்தில் அவர்கள் இணைந்திருக்கிறார்கள், அதாவது ஒன்றாக இணைந்திருக்கிறார்கள், எனவே 22 எலும்புகள் உள்ளன. வெடித்த துண்டுகளின் மிகப்பெரிய பிட்கள் பாரிட்டல் எலும்பு (பின்புறம்), ஆக்ஸிபிடல் எலும்பு (கீழே உள்ள பின் பிட்), கட்டாய எலும்பு (தாடை) மற்றும் முன் எலும்பு (நெற்றி) என அழைக்கப்படுகின்றன.
