Abstract:

The present study has been conducted on right and left scapulae of Indian barking deer. The scapular was triangular in outline. Medial surface presented deeper sub-scapular fossa with a distinct foramen at distal 3rd. The lateral surface was divided by a prominent scapular spine into a smaller supra-spinous fossa and a much larger infra-spinous fossa. The caudal border was the thickest of all the borders. Dorsal/vertebral border was notched towards cranial end. The outline of the caudal border in distal third was divided into two distinct ridges. The ventral angle presented the glenoid cavity which was cup-like and circular in outline. The tuber scapulae or supra-glenoid tubercle was small and coracoid process was well defined and projected as beak-like process. The scapular index was 54.36 and 55.21 for right and left scapulae, respectively. The ratio of supra-spinous to infra-spinous fossa was 1: 4.69 and 1: 4.72 for right and left scapulae, respectively.
