The bony and cartilaginous framework which supports the soft parts of a vertebrate animal.
The more or less firm or hardened framework of an invertebrate animal.
The framework of anything; the principal parts that support the rest, but without the appendages.
Consisting of, or resembling, a skeleton; consisting merely of the framework or outlines; having only certain leading features of anything; as, a skeleton sermon; a skeleton crystal.
The hard internal (inside) or external (outside) framework of animals.
The bones set up in a 3rd party modeling program for an animated character. For more information on setting a Skeleton for a character in Unreal, see the SkeletalSetup document.
The rigid framework of bones that gives form to the body, and also serves to protect and support the soft organs as well as tissues, and provides attachments for muscles.
A structure providing support and protection and aiding free movement of limbs and appendages. An exoskeleton is one that is found 'outside' of the body, and to which the muscles attach on the inside. Arthropods (including insects) have an exoskeleton made of chitin and other minerals. It is made of shaped plates, much like medieval armour, with flexible joints of tough material to allow movement, and can withstand enormous damage. However, it does not expand as the insect grows, and so the entire skeleton has to be shed periodically to allow for growth. Vertebrates have an endoskeleton, or a skeleton that sits inside the body, and then has layers of muscles attached on the outside, finally being covered with skin. The individual bones are made of a lightweight matrix of calcium and other minerals, and grow slowly until the animal reaches maturity. The bones are held together by ligaments, and the joints are covered with a low-friction cartilage to allow easy movement.
The hard bony framework of the human body that supports the tissues and protects the organs.
The rigid framework of bones that gives shape to the body and protects inner organs.
the hard structure (bones and cartilages) that provides a frame for the body of an animal
the internal supporting structure that gives an artifact its shape; "the building has a steel skeleton"
a hierarchical group of bones and joints
a hierarchy of bone nodes with a single root
an inner framework made of bone and cartilage
an inner framework made of bone and or protects the softer body parts of a fish, bird, or human
all the bones that support the tissues and protect the organs of an animal
The supporting framework of a building, ship, and so forth. The skeleton of the Statue of Liberty was made of strong steel.
A hard framework, internal or external, supporting or protecting the soft tissues and organs of a human, animal or plant.
A supporting structure for the lantern room that is open and not enclosed in a brick or metal tower. Examples include Sanibel Island FL , Sturgeon Bay Canal WI, and New Point Loma CA.
A hard structure that supports and shapes an animal.
The rigid framework of bones that gives form to the body, protects and supports the soft organs and tissues, and provides attachments for muscles.
The hardened, insoluble framework that supports or houses many kinds of animals.
a full set of bones A dinosaur skeleton helps scientists learn about what dinosaurs looked like.
Framework of bones providing support for your body. There are 206 bones in your body.
The hard inner framework of bones inside an animal that provides shape, support, and protection. (SS, TG)
the internal structure composed of bone and cartilage that protects and supports the soft organs, tissues, and other parts of a vertebrate organism
A bunch of bones with the person scraped off.
A program that contains the proper header and footer declarations, but lacks actual code to perform a task; also, a file stub that provides the framework for the details of the program to be inserted.
The bony framework of an animal's body. Dinosaur skeletons were made of bones and cartilage.
Descriptively divided into axial (skull, vertebrae column, chest) and appendicular (forequarters, hindquarters) portions or the hard framework of the body; the bones of the body collectively.
The bony framework composed of bone and cartilage that supports the body, protects and supports organs and tissues, and gives the body its shape.
Support structure in animals, against which the force of muscles acts. Vertebrates have a skeleton of bone or cartilage; arthropods have one made of chitin; while many other invertebrates use a hydrostatic skeleton, which is merely an incompressible fluid-filled region of their body.
The framework that supports the soft tissues of vertebrate animals and protects many of their internal organs. The skeletons of vertebrates are made of bone and/or cartilage.
A skeleton is the supporting structure of an animal's body. Dinosaur skeltons were made of bones and cartilage.
Framework of a structure.
In animation, a structure that consists of joints and their bones, used to create hierarchical, articulated deformation effects on deformable objects such as NURBS surfaces.
The skeleton is composed of bones and is the framework of the body.
