    Elastic Cartilage
  11. This cartilage is found in the external ear and the epiglottos
    Elastic Cartilage
  12. This cartilage is highly compressed with great tensile strength
  13. This cartilage contains collagen fibers

  15. What 2 ways does cartilage grow?
    • *Appositional
    • *Interstitial
  16. In which cartilage growth way does the cells in the perichondrium secrete matrix against the external face of existing cartilage?
  17. In which cartilage growth way does lacunae-bound chondrocytes inside the cartilage divide and secrete new matrix, expanding the cartilage within?
  18. Calcification of cartilage occurs when?
    • *During normal bone growth
