    So your dealing with anatomical location terms... Are you taking your animal physiology course now? Proximal actually describes the location where an appendage joins the body, it almost always goes with DIstal which is the furthest point of attachment. For more elaborate explanation you can consult a team of good physiology tutors at tutorville academy in this site www.tutorvilleacademy.com
