Description

In carnivores, the antebrachiocarpal joint is formed between the distal radius and ulna and the radial and ulnar carpal bones, and is divided into radiocarpal joint and a ulnocarpal joint. This joint is stabilized primarily by a radial (medial) collateral ligament and an ulnar (lateral) collateral ligament that are short in carnivores.
