This study was carried out to investigate the morphological development of kidney in the foetal stage of Camelus dromedaries by biometrical analysis. In the experiment, thirthy numbers of Camelus dromedaries embryoes were selected based on their crown-rump length and subsequently divided into 6 age groups consisting of 5 animals in each group. Group I (45 days), group II (60 days), group III (75 days), group IV (90 days), group V (105 days) and group VI (120 days). In foetus of about 45 days, kidneys demonstrated circle shape and no renal pelvis was evident in all kidneys under study. In the 60 days old foetuses, bean shape kidneys were present, renal pelvis was distinct and extensive with a well developed ureter that originated from the middle of the pelvis in both left and right kidneys. In 75-120 days old foetus, length, width and thickness of kidneys were more increased. Significant variation in measurements of some parameters have been resulted.
