    There are three osscicles (small bones) in the middle ear, connected to each other...the malleus, Incus (stirrup) and stapes....(the average measure is 1.5 milimiters...between the Incus and stapes, there is a very tiny bone, with the shape of a lentil (filling the very small joint) called the lenticular bone...it measures .25 milimiters (that is a quarter of a milimeter)..and THAT is te smallest bone in the body...measurable only when it can be found (its so small, that even with a microscope, its hard to see and find)......

    The smallest bone in the body is the stirrup bone inside the eardrum. It is less an inch long.

    The three middle ear bones are the smallest bones in your body. They are pretty close in size.
