    A long bone begins in the fetus as a hyaline cartilage model, then the time of birth a secondary center of ossification or epiphysis develops at each end of the developing long bone. Between puberty and adulthood the bone development overtakes completely and destroys the cartilage. Throughout the entire life of the individual, the continuous tearing down (osteoclastic activity) and rebuilding osteoclastic activity, remodel the bony substance.
