Abstract : This paper looks upon the comparative skeletal difference between three different members of the class Mammalia. When different animals of the same class are looked upon, the bone positioning and count ratio are similar in some spheres. Human anatomy was taken as the primary reference in this study. The three mammals taken in the study are human (Homo sapiens), European Rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) and Horse (Equus caballus). Despite being the members of the same class, evolution led to the current difference in three. Survival conditions and habitat have also played a dominant role in the bone count or number. The skeletal difference was majorly noticed in the bone number and density.
