N represents the number of the specimens that were examined, µ represents the mean value. The unit values are in centimeters. SD: standard deviation; MLF: maximal length of the femur; NLF: natural length of the femur; GTH: distance between the greater trochanter and head; GLT: distance between the greater and lesser trochanters; VDH: vertical diameter of the head; PMF: perimeter in the middle of the femur body; DLM: distance of lateral and medial between the outermost extremities of the two condyles of the femur. | ||||||||||
