Three main types of bones can be found in the hand. The first type is the phalanges, which are can be found in both the fingers and the toes. These are comprised of 14 bones, three in each finger except for the thumb, which only has two. The second type is the metacarpal bones, which are five bones located in the mid-section of the hand. The last type is the carpal bones: the ones that create the wrist.
