The above image show a ventral view of the anterior part of a leopard frog
Once again, note that the
forelimbs of the frog consist of two stout bones - a proximal humerus (1) and a
distal radioulna (2). The hand is composed of a number of carpals (3), metacarpals (4)
and distal elements called phalanges (5).
The forelimbs are supported by a number of bones that make up the pectoral
girdle. These bones include the suprascapulas (seen in the dorsal view
shown on the previous page), the scapulas (6), clavicles (7), coracoids (8) and
sternum (9), which is composed of several separate bones and pieces of cartilage
that are not easily distinguished as separate elements on the image above.
