      Definitely not. Muscles need bones to pull on to flap your arms or wings to enable you to fly. Birds have incredibly strong sternums (the bit in the middle of your rid cage) as this is where the flight muscles attach. Without bones you’d just be a puddle on the floor.

      Kirsty is doing an awesome job answering.
      Imagine being without bones…there would be no structure hold us together.
      Whilst we wouldn’t be able to fly, we’d probably make quite a scary parachute!
