Groove of fibular tendos - Sulcus tendinis musculus fibularis [peron (a)ei] longi


In carnivores, there are two malleolar grooves: one on lateral surface for the tendon of fibularis longus (Sulcus tendinis musculus fibularis longi), and another one on the caudal border for the tendon extensor digitorum lateralis and fibularis brevis (Sulcus tendinum musculi extensoris digorum lateralis et fibularis brevis).
