The rostral epidural rete mirabile was injected with latex and the retial arteries were studied quantitatively in three groups of bovine fetuses. It was seen that the differences between the diameters of the right and left retial arteries were not significant. An interesting observation was that the diameter of the internal carotid artery decreased gradually with an increase in the gestational age, but this reduction was made up for the maxillary artery via the rostral rete branches. The proportion of the blood supply to the rete was also determined in three groups of fetuses.
