    • n manus The hand. Technically, in zoology and anatomy: The distal segment of the fore limb of a vertebrated animal, including all beyond the forearm or fore leg (antebrachium). It is divided into three segments, the carpus, the metacarpus, and the phalanges. See hand. [The word is used to avoid the implication of any difference between “hand” as of a man and “fore foot” as of a quadruped; it is chiefly a morphological term, opposed to pes, which is the corresponding segment of the hind limb. Sometimes called pes anticus.]
