Zoomify Images: Fig 14-23 Human vs. sheep scapula: posterior/lateral views

Fig 14-23 A human left scapula (posterior view) is compared to a sheep’s left scapula (lateral view). The acromion process in the sheep is quite small, while it is quite large in the human. In addition, a small crest is visible on the caudal border of the neck of the sheep’s scapula (arrow). The presence of this crest can be used to distinguish sheep from goats.
