Comparative Anatomy of the Radial Sesamoid Bone in the Polar Bear (Ursus maritimus), the Brown Bear (Ursus arctos) and the Giant Panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca)
Journal of Veterinary Medical Science
Since we have clarified the manipulation mechanism using the radial sesamoid (RS) in the giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca), our aim in this study is to examine the position, shape and function of the RS morphologically, and to observe the attachment to the RS of the M. abductor pollicis longus and the M. opponens pollicis in the other Ursidae species. So, we focused on the carpus and manus of the polar bear (Ursus maritimus) and the brown bear (Ursus arctos) in this study.
