CARTILAGE &BONE: CARTILAGE &BONE ARE DIFFERENT TISSUES. Articular cartilage occurs at the end of joints and is smooth surfaced and avascular. Cartilage is not bone, but is a surface onto which a bone may attach .Spongy Bone . cancellous or trabecluar bone is found in the long bones of your body , e.g.vertebrae, limbs, and pelvis and contains bone marrow in a trabecular spiculated network resembling a sponge.
