Abstract

Study was conducted on twenty four Deccani sheep of different age groups to know the
connective tissue fibres in the skin of Deccani sheep. Dermis presented upper papillary and deeper
reticular layer, however, there was no clearcut demarcation between these layers. The collagen
fibres were thin running parallel to the epidermis in papillary layer, but running horizontal to oblique direction to epidermis in reticular layer. Elastic fibers were found horizontal, vertical and oblique directions to epidermis in reticular layer. The reticular fibers in papillary layer were found in horizontalmdirections where as reticular layer, they were arranged in vertical.
