The strongest bone in the human body is your thighbone, or femur. As a group, the bones in your legs are the strongest.
The thigh bone has the most weight to support, for your body to function properly.
Strongest Bone in the Human Body?
The leg bones are strong and long. In fact, according to the BBC, your femur (thighbone), is the strongest bone in your body.
The femur is the longest and only bone in your thigh.
The average length is about 26.74% of a person’s height.
The collection of leg bones are made up of the femur, tibia, fibula and patella.
The 4 Leg Bones
These are the collection of leg bones that keep you standing and supports the entire weight of the human body. They also allow you to jump, hop, run and walk.
- Femur – biggest, largest and strongest
- Tibia – shinbone 1
- Fibula – shinbone 2
- Patella – kneecap
Of course, there are cosmetic issues dealing with the angle of your two femurs. These will somewhat dictate the angle that your legs converge together.
That may be one reason you will see some people with their knees close together as they walk, and others will show a wide space between the knees in a normal posture.
