The scapula of the buffalo was more regularly triangular in outline and was relatively wider at vertebral end. The supraspinous fossa was wider than cow. The proximal one-third of the spine of scapula had a distinct tuber. The humerus had a shallow musculo-spiral groove. The groove between two interosseous spaces of radius was deeper. On the ilium the gluteal lines were more prominent. The tuber sacrale was separated from the opposite angle by a wider interval than in the cow. The dorsal border of ilium was almost straight in the buffalo which was undulating in the cow. On the ventral surface of symphysis pubis there were cranial and caudal tuberosities.
