Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Calcaneus

Answer: Heel

The calcaneus is referred to as the heelbone in layman's terms and forms the back of the foot. It is the largest bone of the foot, and the front part contains many complex structures where the various bones which make up the rest of the foot and toes connect to it.
2. Hyoid

Answer: Neck

The hyoid is known for being the only bone in the human body which is not connected to any other bone. It is located under the chin, near the thyroid gland, and various muscles of the mouth, the larynx and pharyx are connected to it. Because of its location, injury to the hyoid is rare, and discovery of a fracture to it is often used as evidence of foul play.
3. Vomer

Answer: Nose

Although the nose itself does not consist of bone, it is surrounded by various bones, including the ethmoid and vomer. The vomer is located at the base of the nasal septum and derives its name from the Latin name for a ploughshare due to its shape.
4. Hamate

Answer: Wrist

The hamate is one of the carpal bones of the wrist and is the one on the outside of the wrist on the same side of the hand as the little finger. Its alternative name is the unciform bone, with the name deriving from the Latin word 'uncus', meaning 'hook', due to its shape.
5. Talus

Answer: Ankle

The talus is one of the bones of the ankle, and is found between the heel bone and the leg bones, the tibia and fibula. The bones of the foot are located in front of it. Fractures of the talus are usually caused by severe impact, for example in a car crash.
6. Sacrum

Answer: Pelvis

The sacrum is the large bone at the back of the pelvis, linking the lowest vertebra of the spine and the coccyx. On either side of it are the hip bones. The name derives from the Latin name of os sacrum, meaning sacred bone, which dates from the early Greek doctor named Galen in English.
7. Stapes

Answer: Ear

The stapes, or stirrup bone, is one of the three small bones located in the middle ear. The other two are the incus and malleus, which are also known as the anvil and hammer. All three bones are named for their shape.
8. Zygomatic bone

Answer: Cheek

There are two zygomatic bones, located between the maxilla (upper jawbone) and various bones of the skull. These are the bones you can feel just below your eyes and which give definition to your face. In many cultures, high cheekbones are considered a desirable quality in both males and females.
9. Ischium

Answer: Hip

The ischium is one of the three main bones which form the hip; the others are the pubic bone and the ileum. The ischium is the lower part of the hip with the ileum being the larger part at the top, while the pubis links the left and right halves.
10. Scapula

Answer: Shoulder

The scapula is the triangular bone known as the shoulder blade in layman's terms. It links the clavicle, or collar bone, to the upper arm, or humerus. The name derives from Latin, with some sources saying that the name originally applied to a shovel.
