Spelling: woolly. Also, accept paua and mollusc for the abalone clue? I see the Wikipedia entry for abalone lists a few other synonyms as well.

Isn't cartilage also a type of connective tissue in bone joints?
+1
level 61
Dec 16, 2015
Yes it is a type of connective tissue, but it does not connect bone to bone in the joints. Cartilage only serves to prevent bone from rubbing on bone, which is why when cartilage wears away, moving that particular joint can and will be extremely painful, but the joint is still intact and functioning properly due to the ligament connecting the bones. So it is connective tissue, and it is found in joints, but it does not actually connect the bones.
