      Probably the hip bone of the big bones. The smallest bone in the ear is probably very hard to break too

      I would think that bones that are on the bodies extremities are the most exposed and in danger of breaking. So wrists, ankles, aren and legs. The opposite probably applies for bones that are hard to break, so the hips and pelvis that are in the bodies centre and protected by tissue might be harder to break.
