Long bones are longer than they are wide, with expanded ends. The humerus and the femur are long bones. Short bones are basically cube-shaped. The carpals and the patella are short bones. Flat bones are thin curved bones, like ribs or the parietal bones of the skull. Any bone that does fit in one of these categories is classified as an irregular bone. Vertebrae and the mandible are irregular bones.
