The Digestive System

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.


  1. Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. See the link below for more info.


  2. I would like to share it with all my friends and hope they will like it too.
