Lab: Virtual Pig DissectionIn this laboratory, you will examine those features that represent mammalian anatomy and modifications characterizing the mammalian embryo.Virtual Pig Dissection:As you go through the lab, the scientific method will be your guide to the process. Click here for more information about the scientific method.Introduction: The anatomy of a fetal pig is remarkably similar to the anatomy of most mammals, including humans. In this laboratory, you will carry out the virtual dissection of a fetal pig. As you examine each anatomical structure, try to memorize its name, appearance, and location. Also try to relate each structure to its function in the mammal body.Anatomical terms used in this lab:left: the pig’s left sideright: the pig’s right sidedorsal: towards the backventral: towards the bellyanterior: towards the headposterior: towards the taillateral: towards the sideSTRUCTURES TO BE IDENTIFIED IN FETAL PIG LAB:External anatomyRespiratory systemExcretory systemexternal nareslarynxrenal arterydorsal rooterepiglottisrenal veinpinna (plural=pinnae)tracheaureterthoraxlungsurinary bladderabdomenpleuraurethraumbilical corddiaphragm urogenital openingthoracic cavity scrotum (males)genital papilla (females) anus Digestive systemCirculatory systemMale reproductive systemtonguehearttestesglandspericardiumvas deferenshard palateatriaurethrasoft palateventriclesbulbourethral glandepiglottiscoronary arterypenisthyroidcoronary vein thymusanterior vena cavaFemale reproductive systemesophagusposterior vena cavaovarystomachpulmonary arteryuterine hornsduodenumaortauterussmall intestinesubclavian arteryvaginacaecumsubclavian vein large intestinecarotid artery rectumjugular vein pancreasumbilical arteries liverumbilical vein gall bladderspleen peritoneum mesentery Objectives:Explore and report on the various organs and organ systems in a mammal, as typified by a fetal pig.Study the interconnectedness and dependence of the major organ systems of a mammalian body.Time Requirements:This lab should take six to seven hours to complete.Recording Your Observations:Click here to download the lab report for this lab.
