Picture of Cat Skeleton

Here is a good picture of a cat skeleton. I made it up myself (except for the drawing!). The cat's skeleton is flexible and light as it is designed for speed and agility. It has more bones than our skeleton. The cat has 244 bones and ours has 206. The difference is partly due to the cat's tail that contains 19-28 bones. The diagram says that there are 18-20 bones in the tail, incidentally. Different sources provide different information.

Picture made by Michael at PoC. If you use it, please link back to this page. Thank you.

You can see a larger version of this picture of a cat's skeleton on this page together with tons of information.
