We just learned about the Tragus.

On the outer ear we know about:
- The auricle or pinna, which is the main outside part of the ear
- The helix, which is the folded over part around the outside
- The antihelix, which is the Y shaped bump that sticks out
- The antitragus, which is the bump pointing up that is connected to the earlobe
- The tragus, which is the part closest to the cheek that sticks out

Another part of the ear is the Earlobe, also called the lobulus auriculae.

This is the soft part of the ear that hangs down at the bottom.
Some people have earlobes that are loose, and other people have earlobes that are touching the side of their face and aren't loose.
