Pancreas

Pancreas — Lift the main portion of the small intestine. Expose the stomach and duodenum. Observe the pancreas, a lobulated glandular structure lighter in color than the neighboring intestines. Its main portion lies in the loop of the duodenum. An elongated portion may be observed extending to the left, toward the stomach and spleen. Parts of the gland may also be seen along the dorsal body wall extending to the right of the duodenum and along the dorsal midline. The pancreatic duct enters the duodenum. It is small and difficult to find since it is embedded in glandular material.
