Zoomify Images: Fig 09-19 Human vs. cow scapula: anterior/medial views

Fig 09-19 A human left scapula (anterior view) compared to the cow’s left scapula (medial view). Note that these bones are oriented as they would be in the human skeleton. Since the cow is a quadruped, the glenoid cavity forms the distal part of the bone. The blade of the cow’s scapula is shaped like an elongated triangle.
