The first section is the duodenum. The duodenum is approximately 12 inches long and is the portion of the small intestine that ducts from the pancreas and the liver (gall bladder).

Does a fetal pig have a duodenum?
Liquefied food (chyme) exits the stomach and enters the first portion of the small intestine, known as the duodenum. In the duodenum, chyme is further digested by secretions from the pancreas and gall bladder.
What organs are in the abdominal cavity of a fetal pig?
Large intestine, pancreas, small intestine, spleen, and stomach.
What is the small intestine in a fetal pig?
The small intestine is a long coiled tube found directly below the stomach. Digestion of food is completed in the small intestine. As digested food passes through the small intestines, nutrients and water are absorbed by the villi projections.
Where is the jejunum?
The middle part of the small intestine. It is between the duodenum (first part of the small intestine) and the ileum (last part of the small intestine).
Where is the gallbladder located in a fetal pig?
Bile is collected in the gall bladder, which is found attached to the underside of the liver, and is released into the duodenum through the common bile duct during digestion.
What is duodenum?
The first part of the small intestine. It connects to the stomach. The duodenum helps to further digest food coming from the stomach. It absorbs nutrients (vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, fats, proteins) and water from food so they can be used by the body. It includes the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum.
Where is the mesentery attached in a fetal pig?
Small Intestine – the small intestine is a large mass of coiled tube that fills the bottom half of the abdominal cavity. It is held in place by tissue called mesentery. Lift up a section of the intestine and pull it tight – the mesentery is the thin tissue filled with blood vessels.
What structure stores bile and releases it into the duodenum?
Gallbladder. The gallbladder stores and concentrates bile from the liver, and then releases it into the duodenum in the small intestine to help absorb and digest fats.
What is the peritoneum in a fetal pig?
The covering of the walls of the cavity is referred to as parietal peritoneum, while that covering the organs is termed visceral peritoneum. These membranes slide easily against each other. Next, find the liver (the large, multilobed reddish organ at the top of the peritoneal cavity).
Where is the peritoneum found?
The peritoneum is the serous membrane that lines the abdominal cavity.
What 2 organs are most visible in the peritoneal cavity of a fetal pig?
The cavity is dominated by the liver (large, brown organ at anterior of cavity) and the small intestine, but the large intestine may be visible. The abdominal wall to the left and right of the midline incisions and the umbilical region have been “reflected” (pulled aside to show beneath).
Where is the spleen in a pig?
The spleen lies between the stomach and the diaphragm in the upper left hand side of the abdominal cavity. It is flat, oblong gland (with a tongue-like appearance) that sits on top of the digestive organs in the abdominal cavity.
Where is the rectum located in a pig?
The rectum is located in the dorsal region of the abdominal cavity under the intestines. The rectum is surrounded by large bands of muscles which help to move digestive wastes (feces) out of the body.
What does the gallbladder do in a fetal pig?
Gall bladder. This greenish organ is located underneath the liver, the bile duct attaches the gall bladder to the duodenum. The gall bladder stores bile and sends it to the duodenum, via the bile duct.
