Fur­ther, even the cau­dal shapes are never con­stant amony them. They can be rounded, can be sharply pointed in rhom­bic shape (which is most com­mon), can even have a short fila, some­times even in a non-​convex shape .… Even among the off­springs of the same breed of same par­ents, there can be dif­fer­ent shapes.…
