Wrist bones - carpals

We just learned about the Radius and Ulna in the forearm.

The bones in your wrist are called your carpals.

You can't even really feel them all, but there are eight carpal bones in there!
(From: Wikipedia - hand)

The bones have crazy names like scaphoid, lunate, triquetral, pisiform, trapezium, trapezoid, capitate and hamate.
