External ear


Maybe you think the ear is this flap of funny skin called cartilage which you have on either side of your head. Yes, that’s an ear all right, but the ear we see is only a third of the whole ear. The rest is inside our skull.

The part you see is called the ear flap or auricle.

The external ear picks up sound.
