Septal Nasal Cartilage

We just learned about the Perpendicular Plate of Ethmoid Bone.
A while back we learned about the Vomer bone that is part of the skull right behind where the nose is.

Another part of the septum of the nose is the Septal Nasal Cartilage.

This is the part that sticks out from the perpendicular plate, and is made of rubbery cartilage that you can push around.
It is covered up by skin and other parts of your nose, and makes up the middle that separates your nostrils.
