Rabbit tibia and fibula (lower leg bones)

Tib and Fib

The tibia and fibula make up the lower hind leg of mammals. They can be remembered as ‘big tib and little fib’. The tibia runs from the knee to the ankle. The fibula runs from just below the knee to the side of the ankle joint. It helps provide support to the joints of the lower leg.
