Newborn babies reportedly have 300 'bones',
Compared to an adult human, having only 206!
Really? (The secret is the 300 'bones' vs. 206 bones.)
To get through the birth canal,
The baby must be like the satellite in space,
Unfolding piece by piece to manifest the final morphology!
The so-called baby bones are actually pieces of cartilage,
Which, with maturity, will fuse into the final 206.
An example is the bregma, consisting of many soft spots
On the skull called fontanelles,
Most of which fuse by 2 to 3 months,
The last largest one fuses by about 18 months.
Just imagine--the final ossification process
In the human body occurs in the mid-20s!
And just think--a child can vote, learn to kill in the military,
Or drink itself to death before the 'final ossification'!
