The largest bone in the human body is the femur (or thigh bone). The smallest bones in the human body are the ossicles. The ossicles (also called auditory ossicles) are three bones of the middle ear: malleusincus, and stapes.

The longest bone in human body is called Femur [1]. It is the thigh bone. The head of this bone starts from the hip area (it is one of the main parts in hip joint) and comes till the knee and forms the knee joint. This bone is also strongest bone in Human body.

The shortest bone in human body is Stapes or Stirrup[2] bone. It is present in our ear. It is the third bone in the three bones (called as Ossicles [3]) in the middle part of our ear. Interestingly, it is also the lightest bone in our body.  It is called stirrup bone because it resembles a stirrup, which is a ring that holds the foot of a horse rider.
