The present study was carried out on a number of 40 heads of adult buffaloes and camels. The mandible was disarticulated from the skull and the skin and attached muscles were removed. A longitudinal sawing cut was performed at the mandibular symphysis to obtain two equal hemimandibles and all radiographs were arranged in sequence according to the age. All radiographic measurements were taken and documented. Radiographic features and differences between the mandible of buffaloes and camels were recorded. The position of the mandibular and mental foramina was studied radiographically and the mandibulo-alveolar and mental nerve block were described on 3 living buffaloes and camels.
