Down To The Bone

Our skeleton and the bones that comprise it undertake countless tasks every day. Our bones help us to hear, protect our organs, facilitate movement and form our blood cells. But the skeletal system is under constant stress and can be susceptible to a variety of ailments. This set takes an in-depth look at the framework at the core of over 45,000 species of life on Earth, including ourselves.
