This study was carried out to identify anatomical characteristics of the individual bones of the cranium of the Korean native goat. The pars lateralis and pans basilaris of the os occipitale were fused each other, whereas the squama occipitalis articulated with the pars lateralis, forming the sutrue. The sinus sphenoidale was formed in the corpus ossis presphenoidalis. The os prietale was observed as a single bone. In the os frontale, an fossa innominatum was found ventrolateral to the root of processus cornualis, and the orificium orbitale canalis supraorbitalis was also formed on the pars orbitalis. The meatus temporalis was formed in the medial side of the pars squama of the os temporalis. The lamina cribrosa of the os ethmoidale was membrane-like structure with many foramina. The labyrinth ethmoidalis was composed of four endoturbinalia and ten to twelve ectoturbinalia.
