Abstract:

Present study was conducted on the humerus bones of five adult Indian tigers. The shaft was a four sided structure upto the one third of its length, after which it became three sided because of merging of the anterior surface distally. Olecranon fossa was heart shaped and had several foramina. Greatest length of humerus was (33.62 cm) approximately three times than mid-shaft diameter of the humerus (10.88 cm). The humeral index was less (32.39), it means the humerus was elongated bone. To understand the ecology, biology of the animal and its role within the ecosystem the locomotion provides a key factor. The humerus is an important bone for locomotion, for transfer of weight and for propelling the body forward, by its position it also serves as a protective support for the thorax. The present study put on record the basic morphologic and morphometric anatomy of humerus in tiger which would fill the gap in the scientific literature, on the gross anatomy of humerus of tiger.
