talpoides varied due to the soft tissue around the caudal vertebrae.
In mammals, the vertebrate spinal column comprises a series of repeating bones called vertebrae, including the cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacral, and caudal vertebrae.
This vertebra can be differentiated from the middle and posterior caudal vertebrae of Lusotitan and Galveosaurus (Barco, 2009; Mannion et al.
The most commonly observed healed elements were ribs (n = 18), caudal vertebrae (n = 9), metatarsals (n = 8), femora (n = 5), tibiae (n = 5), fibulae (n = 4), radii (n = 4), ulnae (n = 4), and humeri (n = 3).
The number of vertebrae most commonly observed was 39 (4 corresponding to the Weber apparatus, 16 to the precaudal and 19 to the caudal vertebrae, including the last ones the vertebrae of the caudal skeleton).
Caudal vertebra selection: In both rounds 1 and 2, the highest level of inter-observer agreement on caudal vertebrae selection in a single case was 0.
Placed within the subfamily Ammodytinae, which also includes the genera Gymnammodytes and Hyperoplus, Ammodytes is diagnosed by the presence of scales deeply embedded in dermal plicae below the lateral line, a highly protrusible upper jaw (Pietsch, 1984), and non-expanded neural and haemal spines on the caudal vertebrae (Ida et al.
Increment in vertical and horizontal diameter leads to an oval shape of the pedicle and increased physiological loads at caudal direction may be correlated to the increased dimensions of the pedicles at more caudal vertebrae.
During the 5th and 6th week of gestation, the human embryo has a tail with 10-12 caudal vertebrae.
The dogs might have several normal caudal vertebrae (tail bones) that are attached to the sacrum (the bone at the base of the spine), but the caudal vertebrae toward the tip of the tail are tiny, atrophied and crooked.
Teleostean anatomy mainly distinguishes abdominal and caudal vertebrae on the presence of a couple of ventro-lateral basapophyses for the attachment of ribs in the first group and a closed hemal arch in the second.
