Ear bones - Hammer, Anvil, Stirrup

We just learned about the Inferior Nasal Concha.

Inside your ear are three little bones that your body uses to help make the sounds you hear.

The hammer, anvil and stirrup bones vibrate in your ear so you can hear.

Sometimes people call these by their names in Latin language:
malleus (hammer), incus (anvil), stapes (stirrup)
