Articular capsules - Capsulae articulares

Description

In carnivores, each metacarpophalangeal joint has an articular capsule (joint capsule) that runs between the four bones (metacarpal bone, proximal phalanx and two palmar sesamoid bones) that form the joint with the two collateral ligaments that unite the osseous parts.
