Cartilage


We just learned about the Dense Connective Tissue.

Another type of connective tissue is cartilage.

This is a type of tissue that covers and protects bones.

You can find cartilage in the rib cage, ear, nose, bronchial tubes, vertebral discs, and lots of other places in the body.

It is not as soft as muscle, but not as hard as bone.
