OLOPADE, James Olukayode  y  ONWUKA, Silas Kalu. MORPHOMETRIC STUDIES OF THE CRANIO-FACIAL REGION OF THE WEST AFRICAN DWARF GOAT IN NIGERIA. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2004, vol.22, n.2, pp.145-148. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022004000200008.

This study involved the measurement of some parameters in the craniofacial region of the West African Dwarf Goat (WADG). The mean weight of the head was 0.74kg. The length of the rima oris and space between the median canthi were 8.69cm ad 8.81 cm respectively. The right palpebral fissure and external nare were longer than the left. The eyeball weight was 6.87g; the left eyeball was heavier than the right. Females had significantly heavier heads and body weights than the males. The right palpebral fissure was longer than the left in females but the reverse was the case in males. These findings will serve as baseline information in the study of the head of WADG and in comparative anatomy with other breeds

Palabras clave : Craniofacial region; West african dwarf goat.
