Acromion - Acromion

Description

The spine of the scapula ends distally with the acromion, a well-defined eminence, located close to the ventral angle in carnivores and ruminants but remaining more distal in pigs and horses. The acromion extends ventrally in carnivores as the hamate process and extends caudally in felidae as the suprahamate process. The rabbits possess the both processes of acromion (hamate and suprahamate)
