Abstract

ABSTRACT:
Present study was undertaken to explore the gross anatomy of the trachea in the
black kite. It was widest at the level of glottis and became gradually narrower
after 5 th  cartilaginous ring. Terminal 1/4 th  part of the trachea became gradually
wider again towards bronchi, but near the origin of bronchi it became narrower
again.  Larynx  was  formed  by  cricoid,  procricoid  and  paired  arytenoid
cartilages. Major portion of all the three laryngeal cartilages was ossified. The
syrinx  was  located  near  the  beginning  of  bronchi  and  composed  mainly  of
bronchial parts.
KEY WORDS: Black kite, Trachea, Gross Anatomy.
