Name any two parts of your body where supporting skeleton is made of cartilage instead of bone.
Cartilage is a really strong and flexible tissue which provides various purposes throughout the body.
There are three types of Cartilage:
• Elastic Cartilage
• Hyaline Cartilage
The characteristic of cartilage is that it is smooth and shiny; this is found in the nose, windpipe and other parts of the body as well. Cartilage, unlike bone, is made of soft, elastic, semi-transparent, flexible tissue that is connective tissue usually found in close association with bones.
There are also joint cartilages which act as a covering on the joints or on the bones in order to prevent them from being injured.
Cartilage can also be damaged despite being really flexible and strong.
The two parts of the body which are made up of cartilage instead of bone are heart and ears.
