In this study, it was aimed to investigate the anastomoses between vessels, including this subject and courses, distribution and variation of the penis artery. In this purpose, 12 Akkaraman sheep were used as a material. Latex injection was used inspection of the material.

Penis artery is one of the three branches of the internal pudendal artery. It was observed that this vessels courses caudo ventrally between ischiocaveneus and bul-bospongious muscle and originate at the level of the bulbourethral gland.

It was determined that the penis artery terminated to divide into the bulb of the penis artery and deep artery of the penis, bulb of the penis artery, deep artery of the penis and the left dorsal artery of the penis, bulb of the penis artery, deep penis artery and right dorsal artery of the penis, bulb of the penis artery, the deep artery of the penis, right and left dorsal artery of the penis, in six, three, two and one Akkaraman sheep respectively.

It was determined that the dorsal artery of the penis anastomoses preputial branches of the superficial caudal epigastric artery at the level of the preputium and the bulb atery of the penis and deep artery of the penis distribute in the bulb of the penis and crura penis respectively.
