A rounded, triangular muscle located on the uppermost part of the arm and the top of the shoulder.
Each of the four large paired muscles that cover the front of the rib cage and serve to draw the forelimbs toward the chest.
The large muscle in the upper arm that turns the hand to face palm uppermost and flexes the arm and forearm.
Each of a pair of long flat muscles at the front of the abdomen, joining the sternum to the pubis and acting to bend the whole body forward or sideways.
A muscle in the upper arm that flexes the elbow joint.
Is the largest and the most superficial (outermost) of the three flat muscles of the lateral anterior abdomen.
A muscle of the forearm that flexes the forearm at the elbow. It is also capable of both pronation and supination, depending on the position of the forearm.
A muscle in the forearm that flexes the fingers. It is considered an extrinsic hand muscle because it acts on the hand while its muscle belly is located in the forearm.
A skeletal muscle located in the thigh. One of the adductor muscles of the hip, its main function is to adduct the thigh and it is innervated by the obturator nerve. It forms the medial wall of the femoral triangle.
A slender superficial muscle of the inner thigh.
A long, narrow muscle running obliquely across the front of each thigh from the hipbone to the inside of the leg below the knee.
One of the four quadriceps muscles of the human body. All four parts of the quadriceps muscle attach to the patella (knee cap) via the quadriceps tendon.
The largest part of the quadriceps femoris, a muscle in the thigh. It arises from a series of flat, broad tendons attached to the femur, and attaches to the outer border of the patella.
An extensor muscle located medially in the thigh that extends the knee. The vastus medialis is part of the quadriceps muscle group.
A muscle that originates in the upper two-thirds of the lateral (outside) surface of the tibia and inserts into the medial cuneiform and first metatarsal bones of the foot.
Either of a pair of large triangular muscles extending over the back of the neck and shoulders and moving the head and shoulder blade.
A thick triangular muscle, which occupies the chief part of the infraspinatous fossa. As one of the four muscles of the rotator cuff, the main function of the infraspinatus is to externally rotate the humerus and stabilize the shoulder joint.
Either of two muscles passing below the shoulder joint from the scapula to the upper part of the humerus, the teres major draws the arm toward the body and rotates it inward.
The large muscle on the back of the upper limb of many vertebrates. It is the muscle principally responsible for extension of the elbow joint.
Either of a pair of large, roughly triangular muscles covering the lower part of the back, extending from the sacral, lumbar, and lower thoracic vertebrae to the armpits.
Located in the back of the forearm and have long tendons connecting them to bones in the hand, where they exert their action.

One of three hamstring muscles that are located at the back of the thigh.
A muscle of the thigh located to the posterior, or back. As its name implies, it has two parts, one of which forms part of the hamstrings muscle group.
One of the three muscles that make up the hamstring. It is found on the back of the thigh and runs from the base of the pelvis to the back of the tibia, one of the bones that make up the lower leg.
The chief muscle of the calf of the leg, which flexes the knee and foot. It runs to the Achilles tendon from two heads attached to the femur.
A broad muscle in the lower calf, below the gastrocnemius, that flexes the foot to point the toes downward.
A muscle in the face that closes the eyelids.
A fan-shaped muscle that runs from the side of the skull to the back of the lower jaw and is involved in closing the mouth and chewing.
A muscle that runs through the rear part of the cheek from the temporal bone to the lower jaw on each side and closes the jaw in chewing.
