Fig. 2.

Different aspects (A, B, C, D) of adult chinkara fibular tarsal bone showing tuber calcis (1,7), facet for articulation with central and fourth fused tarsal (2), sustentaculum tali (3&8), lateral surface (4), medial surface.

Fig. 3.

Surfaces of the tibial tarsal (A, B, C, D) of adult chinkara showing synovial fossa (1), condyles (2), planter surface bearing large oval facet (3), distal trochlea (4), proximal trochlea (5), medial surface (6), lateral surface (7).

Fig. 4.

Surfaces of the central and fourth fused tarsal bones showing proximal (A), ventral (B), medial (C), lateral surface (D), articular facets for calcanious bones. 1, foramen in the center of the bones more prominent on the ventral surface 2, articular facet for distal trochela of talus bone 3, articular facet for first, second and third fused tarsal (4,5,6 and 7).

Fig. 5.
