The study was conducted on the femur of four spotted deer. The femur had an average length of 22.4cm and its cylindrical shaft was curved cranially at the middle and distal third of bone. The nutrient foramen is present on the proximal third of cranial surface. The caudal surface had a prominent lateral femoral lip and a developed supra condyloid fossa. The proximal extremity was consisted a medially placed head, greater trochanter and minor trochanter. On the caudomedial aspect of head, a shallow fovea capitis was observed. The lateral and medial condyles of distal extremity had average length and breadth of 5.1cm and 2.8cm;4.7cm and 2.0cm respectively. The summit of greater trochanter was placed in the level with the head. The length and breadth of trochlear groove was 5.2cm and 2.4cm respectively. The medial trochlear ridge was more prominent than the lateral one.
