An example of a fibula is the outer bone that was broken when the child fell from the tree.
The tibia and fibula are united inferiorly, the tympanic bulla is hollow and the infra-orbital foramen narrow.
Reduction of the fibula till nothing but its lower extremity remains.
Moreover, the crowns of the hinder cheek-teeth are taller, and more distinctly crescentic, both feet are two-toed, the ulna and radius are fused, and the fibula is represented only by its lower part.
The outer condyle articulates mainly with the fibula.
