Comparative Anatomy

Chicken Appendicular Skeleton

Coracoid Posterior to the furcula, anterior to the coastal process, and ventral to the scapula
Clavicle Projection that joins with the coracoid and scapula dorsally, and extends anterior and ventral, meeting in the middle at the interclavicle makes up the furcula
Interclavicle Joins the two clavicles together ventrally, makes up the furcula
Scapula Dorsal along the ribs, joined anteriorly with the coracoid, the clavicle, and the humerus
Keel Projection ventrally off of the sternum, which is along the ventral midline of the body
Foramen Triosseum Opening at the anterior joining of the scapula, coracoid, and clavicle
Humerus Extending distally off of the scapula, joining with the ulna and radius
Radius The smaller of the two distal limb bones, paired with the ulna
Ulna The larger of the two distal limb bones, paired with the radius
Olecranon process Process off medially the ulna
Metacarpals extending off of the ulna and radius distally
Phalanges The most distal part of the limb
Pubis Thin, long bones extending ventrally from pelvic girdle to form the anterior part of the innominate bone
Ischium Ventral most posterior part of the innominate bone
Ilium Dorsal to the ischium, posterior to the pubis
Obturator Foramen who the hell knows
Acetabulum The depression in the pelvic girdle where the femur articulates
Femur The bone that articulates with the pelvic girdle
Patella Projection on the tibiotarsus bone, just ventral to the articulation between the femur and the lower leg
Tibiotarsus Articulated with the femur, hosting the patella, the larger of the distal leg bones
Fibula Articulated with the femur, very thin running laterally with the tibiotarsus
Tarsometatarsus Articulated with the tibiotarsus distally
