Transcript of Similarities and Differences Between the Fetal Pig and Human Body Systems

By: Katia B., Sarmed P., & Chance H. How Does a Fetal Pigs Lung Differ From a Humans Lung? What do Fetal Pigs Have That We do Not Have? A fetal pig stomach looks like a small inflatable balloon, and the size of a human stomach is the size of a fist. They both have the overlap where the duodenum meets the jejunum in the small intestine. In the both living things the function of the stomach is to digest the food. It does this by storing food that we eat, breaking down the food into a liquid mixture called chyme, mixing pepsin and pepdidase were the foods break down, which slowly empties the liquid mixture into the small intestine. Is the Heart of a Fetal Pig Similar to a Heart of a Human in Size and Shape? The fetal pigs lung and a humans lung have the same jobs which is to exchange oxygen and CO2, but as you can see the pigs lung is flatter than a regular human lung. What is the Difference Between a Fetal Pigs Stomach and a Human Stomach? Differences Between Fetal Pig and Human Body
System A human heart is the size of a human fist and a fetal pig heart is the size of a grape. As you can see they are similar in shape even though the human heart is bigger than the fetal pig heart. They both have the same function in giving a living thing life. Also it has to transport blood through the circulatory system, which carries food and o2 to the cells. The right side receives de- oxygenated blood and the the left side receives oxygenated blood, so that the oxygen can be delivered to the cells. Human Heart Fetal Pig Heart Fetal Pig Lung Human Lung What are the Similarities & Differences Between a Fetal Pig & Human Skeleton? A fetal skeleton as well as a human baby skeleton can break easily, but in a adult skeleton it can't break easily. As you can see the fetal pig has a tail and us humans don't which is basically the differences in the structure.
A fetal pig consists of 5 vertebrae, but in a human skeleton it only has 3 vertebrae. Some other bones that pigs and humans have are the same, but they don't have the same words. Some things that fetal pigs have that we do not have is a tail. The fatal pigs tail is a vertebrae that we do not have, do to our structure. We also do not have those big pointy ears. We have them curved. Fetal Pig Ear and Tail Human Ear Fetal Pig Stomach Human Stomach Bibliography "Stomach." Human Stomach. N.p., 23 May 2013. Web. 23 May 2013. "Fetal Pig Heart." Heart.
