The present study was conducted on the trachea and lungs of adult Pashmina, Bakerwali and non-descript goats (ten each) to evaluate the comparative the gross morphological features of these organs. The trachea of the goat was a tubular structure that begins at the cricoid cartilage of the larynx and ends when it bifurcates to form the principal bronchi, composed of a series of incomplete rings. The lungs were located in the thoracic cavity, protected by the thoracic cage and covered by a serous membrane known as the pleura. The lung consisted of paired right and left the lung. On the medial surface, there was a hilus, where the primary bronchi and associated blood vessels enter and leave the lungs. The colour of the lungs was light reddish in goat.
