Abstract:

The os-coxae of flamingo and great Indian horned owl it consists of three bones namely ilium, ischium and pubis. In flamingo and great Indian horned owl, the ilium was elongated in shape and consisted of preacetabular and post acetabular parts. The preacetabular part of the ilium in both the species of the present study was quadrilateral in shape. The ischium was flat, almost triangular in outline and was situated ventral to the post acetabular part of the ilium in both species. The ischiatic foramen which was large and oblong in flamingo and small oval in great Indian horned owl. In flamingo and great Indian horned owl the pubis was a thin rib like elongated bone placed along the ventral border of the ischium with which it formed the ischio-pubic incisures. In both species on the caudo-dorsal aspect of the acetabulum was a large bony prominence, the anti- trochanter was large and triangular in shape in the great Indian horned owl a pointed apex.
