Abstract

This study was conducted to determine the anatomical examination of the
salivary glands, their position and their opening in the indiagenous geeze (Anser
anser).
Eight healthy birds (4 male & 4 female) were used.
The data showed that the geese have well developed salivary glands namely,
palatine (lateral and medial) spheno pterygoid glands of the angle of the mouth
and cricoarytenoid salivary glands. Those salivary glands opened by means of
the main excretory ducts in the oral cavity while the lingual (anterior &
posterior) and mandibular (anterior & posterior) salivary glands. Exhibited
numerous ducts opened in the oral cavity.
