This study used ten heads of adult buffalo taken from slaughterhouse. After transferring the samples to the anatomy hall, a split was carefully created on skin of muzzle and the skin was slowly separated from muscles and hypodermal connective tissue. Place of connection of cartilages to bone, cartilages to each other and shape of the cartilages were specified. In buffalo, nose apex has two nostrils fixed by bone and cartilage. After identifying and separating the cartilages, it was found that nasal cartilages in buffalo consisted of: 1) septum nasal located between two nostrils and reinforces it from inside. 2) dorso-lateral nasal cartilage constituting dorsal and lateral parts of the nostril. 3) ventro-lateral nasal cartilage constituting ventral and lateral parts of the nostril. 4) lateral accessory cartilage constituting lateral and ventral parts of the nostril. 5) medial accessory nasal cartilage located at Alar fold and connected to ventro-lateral nasal cartilage.
