Class Summary - Today we dissected a pregnant cow uterus. We compared the gestational period for a human and a cow (both 40 weeks / 9 months). We talked about the placentomes that are in the chorion of the inside of the uterus. We looked at the amniotic sac and looked at the connections between the umbilical cord and placentomes. The test on the reproductive system will be during finals time next week.
Homework - None / Study for test on Thursday.
Objectives - Students will use comparative anatomy to compare a human uterus to a cow's uterus.
