LarynxAt the anterior (toward head) of the trachea, you can find the hard light colored larynx (or voice box). The larynx allows sounds to be produced. Once you cut up into the throat with scissors and remove the two flaps to expose what is under, the larynx is easily identifiable due its width compared to the small ringed trachea and light pinkish color. Its uppermost segment is the triangular flap of tissue, the epiglottis, which protects the opening to the trachea.
