What is the name given to the last two pairs of free ribs in our body?
We do not have a set of free ribs in our body. All of our ribs come together to form a cage around our lungs.
Floating ribs are four atypical ribs in human ribcage. They are called so because they are attached to the vertebrae only, and not to the sternum or cartilage coming off of the sternum. Some people are missing one of the two pairs. Others have a third pair. Most, however, possess only two pairs.
