On this pig dissection we started off by taking the pig out of the bag letting some of the fluid drain off back into the bag so we will not get it everywhere. Then we placed our dissection mat down on the table laid the pig down on it and tied the pigs legs down, and back so we will have a good view of the abdomen region of the pig. We then identified the sex of our pig which in fact we had a female pig.
We took our scalpel and started at the top of the throat of our pig cutting not so deeply so we do not cut any of our organs inside of the pig or cut straight threw the muscle system of our pig. We took and opened up the pig while looking at our muscular system and identifying the features of this pig. The next step in our process will be taking the scalpel once again and cutting all the way into our pig …show more content…
So we were not able to see how long they really were but we were told they were supper long like 2 foot or more.
Then we were done doing the real dissection so we were told to dissect anything we want to so we moved up to the cranial region and took our scalpel and cut the skin away from the skull. And took a pair of bone clippers and cut right threw the skull opening up the cranial cavity viewing the brain it looked nothing like I figured that they would look like then scooped out the brains with our fingers and it was nothing but a heap of brain in a little pile. After taking the brain out we were actually able to see the spinal cavity which was actually pretty cool to stick my fingers in and actually feel the spine. And it was pretty easy to identify the veins from the arteries because they had taking latex die and colored them different colors one was blue and one was red so we could tell the difference between

After observing many of the outside traits of our fetal pig, we were now ready to really look beneath the skin. The skinning lab is very important because it is the layer that covers much of the muscular system that we wanted to observe. By removing the skin by pulling and cutting, we would then increase our knowledge by getting our hands dirty and internally observing the pig. Under the skin, we would be able to view some of the many muscles that we learned in the past chapters.
The boys even stick the pigs head on spear and call it their gift to the beast, “The head is for the beast. It's a gift” (Golding, 137). The impurity of this scene gives readers a look into what's to come. This foreshadows Simon's death because it shows that if they treat a pig this bad, they are going to do worse stuff to a human. The purpose of this scene is to show the finish of guiltlessness and human progress and start of viciousness.
The Life of a Human Cadaver, the Hows and Whys By: Robyn Anderson Have you ever wondered what would happen to your body if you were to sell it to scientist, and allow them to use it for scientific research? Well then do I have a book for you, Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers, by Mary Roach. Mary wrote the book Stiff to help others understand what actually happens if you were to give your body to scientists. This book gives of an insight of the secret life of human cadavers. If you feel like you want to have a future career in anatomy and what to be a scientist when you grow up then this is a perfect book for here.
After several laps, rabbits with pieces torn from their bodies twitch and writhe in agony. Their spine-chilling screams ring out across the training track. Piglets are one of the most intelligent and sensitive of all species. Their futile squeals could be heard as their bodies were torn apart. Native possums are a protected species and are tied to lures and
Organ donations from one donor can save up to eight lives, and also change the lives of more than fifty people (“Facts About Organ Donation”). What is simply baffling about this statistic is the fact that most people usually don’t consider that something like organ donation could be that impactful. However, in Mary Roach’s Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers, she explores the relevance of this process, as well as many other topics associated with the scientific study of cadavers. The purpose that Roach is trying to convey in this novel is to persuade the audience to think about the impact cadavers have had in history, as well as in the world today, and to consider the options she provides as to what can be done with the human body after
“They struck others in the shoulders, and their arms were torn from their bodies. They wounded some in the thigh and some in the calf. They slashed others in the abdomen, and their entrails all spilled to the ground. Some attempted to run away, but their intestines dragged as they ran; they seemed to tangled their feet on their own entrails (pg 76).”
Fetal pigs also do not have iliac arteries that humans have. Additionally, because of the fact that pigs are quadrupedal and humans are bipedal there are small variations in the size and location of some muscles. Apart from these differences, the organs that are remotely the same in both pigs and humans include, stomach, spleen, bile duct system, small intestines, kidneys, bladder, pericardium, vena cava, esophagus, phrenic nerve, urethra, ovaries, labia, testes, epididymis, vas deferens,
This is why I think factory farming should be banned for all the safety hazards and the animal abuse towards those pigs. If we replaced all those factory farms with family farms where the cattle or pigs can run around and play until they get butchered instead of sitting in pins all there life and getting trampled to death. They also have to live in there own feces, and the ventilation system isn’t the best. Where on a family farm the animals would be able to run around without getting trampled to death, or having to live in there own feces.
