Pelvis, hip bone

We just learned about the Coccyx Bone.

At the base of the spine, the sacrum is connected to the pelvis, or hip bone.

The pelvic bone is made up of three parts, the ilium, ischium and pubis.

(from: wikipedia - hip bone)

The ilium is the hip bone part you can feel on your side.
The ischium is the bone that you sit on, right on either side of your bottom.
The pubis is right in the middle below your tailbone.
