Kidneys — this reddish-brown bean-shaped organ lays embedded retroperitoneal, or behind the parietal peritoneum, in the dorsal body wall, one on each side. To locate them you must lift the small and large intestines to reveal the dorsal body underneath, and then use your probe to break through the mesentery cover them in order to view them completely. You will be able to identify where they are by seeing an oval shaped lump through the mesenteries on both the left and right sides of the dorsal body.
