Abstract: This work was conducted to study with the aim of studying the gross anatomical features of the bones of thoracic limb of Giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis). Consequently this study was carried out with the bones of thoracic limb namely scapula, humerus, radius ulna. For this purpose all the bones of thoracic limb were collected, identified and measured after processing. The scapula was a flat bone with a spine in the lateral surface. The humerus was a long bone with two extremities and a spirally twisted shift. The average weight of the humerus was 3687.5 gm. The radius and ulna were articulated at their both proximal and distal extremities. The radius one was smaller and thinner than that of the ulna. The anatomy and morphometric parameters of the bones of Giraffe’s forelimb will assist in surgical and radiographic interpretation of skeletal system.
