Based on dissection of 11 (4 m and 7f) adult wolves (Canis lupus L., 1758) kept in captivity, the morphology and mechanics of the ligaments and menisci of the femorotibial joint are described. Compared with the anatomical data of the dog (Canis lupus f. familiaris), the differences are discussed with respect to their importance for functional considerations… CONTINUE READING
