HUMERUS -

Bone of upper arm. Head of humerus is fitted in glenoid cavity of scapula.

Ball and socket joint is formed.

Head bears a pair of small tuberosities, separated by intertubercular groove.

Trochlea is fitted in sigmoid notch of radius ulna.

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

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

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