SARMA, Kamal. Morphological and Craniometrical Studies on the Skull of Kagani Goat (Capra hircus) of Jammu Region . Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2006, vol.24, n.3, pp.449-455. ISSN 0717-9502.

Forty six heads of adult Kagani goats were used in the present study. The frontal bone did not constitute the caudal extent of the frontal surface. Both the nasal bones were divided longitudinally into two halves by deep notches up to the middle part starting from its rostral end. The facial tuberosity was placed at the junction of the 4th and 5th cheek teeth. The basisphenpoid bone had a sharp median ridge. The frontal bone contributed to the maximum in this animal. Bilateral variation was recorded among the orbits of right and left sides. Skull base length varied positively with the skull width and skull length
