Tibia & Fibula

We just learned about the femur and patella.

The bones attached below those two are called the tibia and fibula.
(from: wikipedia - fibula)

The tibia is the big one in front, also known as the shin bone.
It's the big flat bone you can feel in the front of your lower leg.
If you feel down around the outside of your ankle you can feel the smaller tibia bone.
