Title

Unusual feature in dog's scapula

Description

The height of the mid section of the scapula's spine is so reduced as to be almost level with the blade.

Could this be due to a deformity or a wound/break although there does not appear to be much bone overgrowth in the lowered spine which the latter in life might generate.

However, the scapula is from a young animal, one of the oldest of about 10 RB dogs ranging in age from neonate to under one year that were found in 1976 in a shaft in Hatch Furlong, Ewell.

Image descriptions are as follows:
