The present study has been done on the scapula of blue bull. The scapula was a flat triangular bone with two surfaces, three borders and three angles. The lateral surface was divided by the scapular spine into a small and elongated supra-spinous fossa and a much larger and triangular, infra-spinous fossa. The spine was wavy in outline. The acromian was pointed, tuber spine was indistinguishable and sub-scapular fossa was shallow. The tuber-scapulae were small and the coracoid process was ill developed. The glenoid cavity was almost circular and deep in outline a small glenoid notch was present over glenoid cavity.

Key words:Blue bull, Morphometrical, Scapular spine, Scapula.
