Median sacral crest - Crista sacralis mediana


The median sacral crest, is formed by the totally fused spinous processes of sacral vertebrae, in ox, and sometimes in other ruminants (ov. and cap.). In carnivores and horses, the based of spinous processes are fused but the free end remain separate, so there is no median sacral crest. In pigs, it is an indistinct crest.
