Abstract:

The gross morphological study on the scapula of Indian Wild cat revealed that it was flat and quadrangular bone with two surfaces, four borders and four angles. The scapular spine was well developed with increasing height distally and its termination in the acromian process. The acromian process was divided in to hamate and suprahamate process which were triangular and in the form of quadrilateral plate, respectively. The ratio of supra and infraspinous fossae was approximately 1:1. The subscapular fossa presented four ridges and the nutrient foramen was present near the scapular neck. The scapular notch was formed by the continuation of ventral border and it was extended up to supra-glenoid tubercle. The coracoid process was well developed and hook like. The glenoid cavity was shallow and oval with laterally placed glenoid notch.
