long bone definition and meaning
1Take this long bone right here, called the humerus, for instance.
2But in some of your classic long bones, like the femur and humerus, the spongy bone and its red marrow are concentrated at the tips.
3Instead, they're alien creatures that contain just one long bone, like a sentient leg of ham.
4These capillaries are extremely thin blood vessels found in long bones like the femur, and they help transport things like stem cells between the bone marrow and outside of the bone.
