Stylohyoid ligament is attached to the lesser horn, the hyoid bone is suspended with long stylohyoid ligaments from the styloid process of the temporal bone of the outer skull base and maintains the position of the hyoid bone(4)(1). Anatomically the hyoid is composed of a body, two greater cornua and two lesser cornua. Each cornu is attached to the body by syn- chondrosis that calcifies with ageing. The tip of the cornu are directed postero-laterally. The important attachments of the hyoid are myelohyoid, omohyoid, thyorohyoid and stylohyoid(1).
The Metatarsophalangeal Joints are Condyloid Joints which allow various planes of movement.

In each knee joint, there is two pieces of C-shaped cartilage which lies between the surfaces of the femur and tibia. The lateral side of the meniscus is known ad lateral meniscus while the medial side is known as medial meniscus.

Dr. Slobodchikoff, a professor at university of Arizona, has done research on the Gunnison’s prairie dog for almost 30 years now (Abumrad).
It is a fibrous sac that envelops the cavity of the synovial joint to keep the synovial fluid inside the capsule. For the hip joint specifically, the fibrous layer of the joint capsule attaches proximally on the hip bone to the bony rim of the acetabulum and the transverse acetabular ligament. Distally, it is attached to the femoral neck on the anterior side at the intertrochanteric line and the bottom of the grater trochanter. On the posterior side the joint capsule is arched and crosses the neck proximally to the intertrochanteric crest, but it is not attached. The joint capsule encases about two thirds of the neck and femur

STERNUM ( aka breastbone and supports the collar bones).
