Our study was made on 3 clinically healthy, Chinchila laniger females, weighting 600 grams. These animals were commercially slaughtered for their fur. The descending abdominal aorta was identified and then injected with a colored substance, followed by anatomical dissection. The stratigraphic dissection underlined the descending abdominal aorta and its terminals, represented by two common iliac arteries (left and right) forming a right angle at their origin point. Only one specimen presented a median sacral artery.
