There are axial and appendicular bones.
(The appendages are the arms and legs, which contain approx. 30 bones each.)

There are typically 22 bones in the head.
There are 33 bones in the spine.

These include:

external image 12by12_spaces.gif 5 sacral;
external image 12by12_spaces.gif 4 coccyx.
The pelvic girdle is fused to the sacrum at the sacro-illiac joint.
The pelvis is the part that is added onto the spine.
The thorax (chest) consists of 12 pairs of ribs:

external image 12by12_spaces.gif 3 pairs 'false' ribs (joined to the sternum ("breast-bone") by cartilage);
external image 12by12_spaces.gif 2 pairs 'floating' ribs (not connected to the sternum ("breast-bone") at all, connected to the diaphragm.;

The shoulder girdle consists of the scapula (shoulder blade) and the clavicle ("collar bone").
