ABSTRACT



The research involved thirty adult European brown hare individuals. Arteries were filled with latex introduced into the abdominal aorta. It was found that the following descend from the aortic arch: the brachiocephalic artery and left subclavian artery. 40% of the common carotic arteries in their initial section constituted a common trunk, and in 20% cases both these arteries were an independent branch of the brachiocephalic artery. In such cases the left common carotid artery separated from the brachiocephalic artery immediately over the descend from the aortic arch. The right common carotid artery descends slightly higher. In 40% of all the individuals researched there was found a common trunk for the right common carotid artery and the right subclavian artery.

Key words: hare, aorttic arch, arterie.
