What? Where Do They Go?

Babies are born with 300 bones, but by adulthood, we have only 206 in our bodies.

I know for a fact that there are bones in our feet and hands that are distinctly separate bones in children, but they fuse into one as we grow into adulthood. I think there are some in the spine and skull that do the same thing as well!

Guess that explains why they're so flexible!
