Hello! "In the skeleton of the adult there are 206 distinct bones" Osteology -- Development of the Skeleton http://www.bartleby.com/107/17.html "At birth, the human body contains ~270 bones. This number declines slightly during infancy as a few separate segments join to form single bones. From young childhood through puberty, the bone count increases as wrist and ankle bones develop. Post-adolescence, the bone count steadily declines again with the gradual union of independent bones" Navigational Osteography http://www.nanomedicine.com/NMI/8.2.4.htm For more interesting "bone facts", you may want to visit Bud's Bones http://www.usm.maine.edu/gany/bonebuddies/bud.htm Google search term number bones body ://www.google.com.ar/search?hl=es&q=number+bones+body&meta= I hope this helps!
