      The stapes is the third bone of the three ossicles in the middle ear. The stapes is a stirrup-shaped bone, and the smallest in the human body. It rests on the oval window, to which it is connected by an annular ligament.

      The smallest bone in the human body is the stapes which is found in the ear. It is just fascinating how small it is. It is just 3 mm by 2.5 mm in size
