To examine the digestive system of the fetal pig, we cut down the center of the fetal pig, and around the umbilical cord. We made several horizontal cuts to make it easier to fold back the flaps of skin, to make the digestive system more accessible. Scissors are helpful when cutting through the ribs. Make sure to cut carefully and not too deeply, to avoid damaging the organs in the thoracic and abdominal cavity.
Pull away the flaps of skin and muscle to expose the organs of the digestive system.
