Word! Cartilage

Word! Cartilage


(En español: Cartílago)

Say: kar-tel-ij

Touch the tip of your nose or the top of your ear - that's cartilage. It's bendable, not hard like bone. This flexible material can be found in various parts of your body, including between bones so they don't rub together.
