Bony tarsusBony tarsusBony tarsus

Bony tarsus: The bony tarsus is made up of 7 bones that are situated between the bones of the lower leg and the metatarsus bones. The talus thus constitutes the proximal (near) part of the foot.

The 7 bones of the tarsus are the calcaneus, talus (astragalus), cuboid, navicular (scaphoid), and the first, second, and third cuneiform bones.

The tarsus contributes to the broad, flat framework of the foot. This is appropriate since "tarsus" comes from the Greek "tarsos" meaning a wicker framework or basket.
