In the tarsus the cuboid articulates with both the calcaneum and the astragalus, which is remarkably flat.
The foot in the Dwarf-Lemurs is long, on account of the elongation of two of its ankle-bones (the cuboid and the naviculare).
The tarsal bones have the regular Subungulate arrangement, the cuboid not articulating with the astragalus.
Note, in a cross-section, that there are small ovoid or cuboid cells at the bases of the large ectoderm cells.
The distal row of the tarsus has four bones, three cuneiforms and a cuboid.
In the former the calcic scales and crystals are distinct and quite as in L. tigrinum; in the latter they are cuboid, irregular.
The external border of the foot lay next to the plate, as is shown by the articulation of the cuboid.
Union of the navicular and cuboid, and sometimes the ectocuneiform bone, of the tarsus.
The astragalus has a large flat articular surface in front for the navicular, and a small one for the cuboid.
But this will not be so if the vase is spherical or if it has the shape of a cuboid.
cuboid cu·boid (kyōō'boid')
Having the approximate shape of a cube. n.
A tarsal bone on the outer side of the foot, articulating in front with the calcaneus and lateral cuneiform, and behind with the fourth and fifth metatarsal bones.
