Abstract

The caudal intercarotid artery was investigated in 6 species of Equidae family and in lowland tapir of Tapiridae family. It was found that this artery connects bilateral intracranial segments of the internal carotid artery. It is located in the cavernous and intercavernous sinuses, caudal to the hypophysis. This artery being constant vessel in horse, is also permanent vessel in other species of Equidae family. It is homologous with anastomising vessel in fishes, amphibia, reptiles and birds.
