scapula was 9.16 cm and the same at the glenoid angle was about 4.06cm. The average length of scapula at cranial border was 17.75 cm, at the caudal border was 15.1cm and at the middle was about 17cm.The thickening and rolling of scapular spine caudally indicated attachments of heavy muscles characteristics of hunting behaviour of mudhol hound dogs.
