“Where in the human body do we have cartilage?”

Leonardo da Vinci’s anatomical study of the arm, showing the movements of the biceps. c. 1510 (Image via Wikipedia)

Mommyo, promptly: “Your nose and ear.”

The Five-Year-Old, thoroughly: “Where else?”

The iPhone, belatedly:

Cartilage is found in the joints between bones, the rib cage, the ear, the nose, the elbow, the knee, the ankle, the bronchial tubes and the intervertebral discs. (Wiki.Answers.com)

Mommyo, bravely: “Next!”

About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, muse about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
