Fetal Pig Dissection. Virtual Pig Dissection. http://www.whitman.edu/offices_departments/biology/vpd/main.html Go through each of the study guides and take the quizzes. .
The top of the heart will be covered with the thymus gland, which extends up into the throat. Much of the thymus has been removed from the pig pictured here.
On either side of the heart are the lungs (2). Note that the left lung is smaller. You will have cut the diaphragm (3), but it can still be seen, as can its attachment to the body wall.
The large liver (4) may vary from reddish brown to blue. The former is its natural color, but blue latex often fills its numerous blood spaces. Just behind the liver on the left side, the stomach (5) can be seen, and the spleen (6) raps around the left side of the liver. The spleen is very delicate and may break when you try to separate it. It is not surprising that ruptured spleens are one of the most common types of internal injury.
The large umbilical vein (7) can be seen entering the liver. You had to cut this vein during the initial incisions. Its other end can be seen on the flap carrying the umbilical cord.
The intestines of a pig are arranged somewhat differently from those of a human. The pinkish colored jejunum (8) is seen on the top right, the greener ileum (9) at the lower centre, and the coiled up colon (10) at the top left.
The urinary bladder (11) folds back with the umbilical cord, and is surrounded by the two large umbilical arteries (12). These arteries take blood from the fetus to the placenta, where it picks up nutrients and oxygen from the mother's blood, and loses waste products of the fetus's metabolism.
cord. This is the opening through which the erect penis will be everted for mating.
