    Tendons are connective tissue that connect muscles to bone. Ligaments are elastic connective tiissue that attach bones together so that the articulating surfaces make proper contact.

    A ligament is a piece of cartilage that holds two bones together and absorbs shock. Tendons anchor muscles to the bones.

    Ligaments attach bone to bone and hold joints together. Tendons attach muscles to bones and other parts. Both are connective tissue
