The appendicular skeleton consists of bones that function in supporting the appendages. This portion of the skeletal system includes the framework of the limbs, the pelvic girdle, and the shoulder girdle. The seven bones of the appendicular skeleton include the femur, the fibula, tarsal bones, tibia, phalanges, and metatarsal bones. The vertebral column is a part of the axial skeleton which includes the bones of the head, and trunk of vertebrates.
