Yes, the skeletal system provides support, mobility, and protection.


The skeletal system is essentially the framework of your body. Without it, if you are familiar with Harry Potter's bone in his arm were gone due to Lockhart's incompetence, the body would be like Harry's arm. Jelly like and it would be immobile. As for the protection part, an example is if a person tries to stab a person's heart, it would be difficult due to the ribs and sternum blocking the heart. Like how a cage would provide protection to something.
