Apendicular Skeleton of the Paca (Cuniculus paca)

Six specimens (4 male and 2 female) were used to describe the apendicular skeleton of the paca. These animals were captured in various regions of Costa Rica and prepared for maceration and radiographic studies of skeletal structures. The results of this study are compared with those carried out in domestic carnivora.
