Foot bones. Side view of the foot bones from a normal human skeleton. At upper frame are the two bones of the lower leg, the fibula (at left) and the tibia. These form an ankle joint with the foot bone known as the talus. At lower left the large heel bone, or calcaneus is seen. At lower right the toe-bones, or phalanges are seen. These connect to the long metatarsals and in turn to the tarsals connecting the ankle. There are 26 bones in each foot.
