The present study has been conducted on the scapula of a small Indian civet cat. The scapula was flat roughly quadrilateral bone with two surfaces, three angles and three borders. Medial surface presented subscapular fossa. Lateral surface was divided into supra-spinous and infra-spinous fossa by scapular spine. The total length of the scapular spine was 5.77 cm. The maximum height of spine was observed at proacromion level. Spine terminated as acromion process. Roughly triangular caudally directed metacromion process was seen just dorsal to acromion process. Tuber spine was indistinguishable. Glenoid cavity was elliptically elongated in outline. Tuber scapulae was indistinct. The ratio of maximum width of supra-spinous to infra-spinous fossa was 1 : 1.55 whereas scapular index was 50.74.

Key words: Civet cat, Glenoid cavity, Metacromion process, Morphometrical, Scapula
