Abstract:

The microscopic characteristics of dorsal guard hairs of Hyaena hyaena were examined using optical light microscope to know its hair morphology. The hair of H. hyaena is diagnosed by its unique medullary characteristics i.e. the composition of medulla- ‘unicellular regular’, structure of medulla- ‘simple or narrow medulla lattice’ and the ‘oblong’ shape cross-section. The photo-micrographs and characteristics of dorsal guard hairs are presented here may be used for the species identification.


Keywords: Hyaena hyaena, Hair morphology, Dorsal guard hair.
