a metatarsal is a bone in your foot!
ankle and foot
5 in each human foot, normally.
There are 5 metatarsals in the foot. One for each toe.
the short lateral arch of the foot formed by the heads of the metatarsal bones.
== == In the feet there are tarsal's, the metatarsal's and the phalanges. The tarsal's join the foot to the leg. They are in the ankle part of your foot. The metatarsal's are more in the foot not in the toes. If you rub your foot you can feel you metatarsal's. And also in your foot there is the phalanges which are more in your toes than your foot part. They are the bones in your toes and you can also feel them too. The question about how many bones in the hands have already been answered, and I think so has this, but it said it hadn't been answered on the other page.
The Metatarsal Bones.
The metatarsal bones are the five bones in the arch of each foot.
