Note :- In frog radius & ulna both are fused in complete length, so the world radioulna is used instead of radius ulna.

HAND -

In hand wrist, palm & fingers are clear. In wrist carpals bones are present.

In palm metacarpals are present. In fingers phalanges are present.

The digital formula of rabbit and man is 2 3 3 3 3 = 14.
