The Hand

 

Each hand has 27 different bones. The bones are connected with muscels and tendons. Tendons are tough  tissue that connectes the muscel to the bone. The hand bones also have a nickname, metacarpus. Metacarpus is the five bones from the tips of your fingers to  the bottom of your wrist. Just like the bones in your foot, the bones in your fingers are called phalanges. Your fingers have three phalanges and the thumb has only two. These joints allow your finger to be a lot more flexible. Because of these bones your hands are a lot more fuctional then most any other creature.
