Distal extremities contained two condyle-medial and lateral, trochlea and inter condyloid groove. Lateral condyloid was traversed by a groove. The shaft consisted of four surfaces viz., medial, lateral, cranial and caudal. Lateral surface was wide above and narrow behind. Medial surface and caudal surface was separated by inter muscular line. The nutrient foramen was at the middle of the caudal surface of the shaft.
