Vertebra can be divided into 5 groups based on their position in the body. The first 7 are called cervical vertebrae, the next 12 are called thoracic vertebrae, the next 5 are lumbar, the next vertebrae, a single vertebrae formed by fusion of bones is called the sacral vertebrae, and the last vertebrae, also the result of fusion is called the coccygeal vertebrae also known as the tail bone.
