Liver 1: A large very vascular glandular organ of vertebrates that secretes bile and causes important changes in many of the substances contained in the blood (as by converting sugars into glycogen which it stores up until required and by forming urea). 2: Any of various large compound glands associated with the digestive tract of invertebrate animals and probably concerned with the secretion of digestive enzymes.
Lung One of the usually paired compound saccular thoracic organs that constitute the basic respiratory organ of air-breathing vertebrates.
Minor Salivary Gland
Muscle - Skeletal
Nerve - Tibial
Ovary One of the typically paired essential female reproductive organs that produce eggs and in vertebrates female sex hormones.
Pancreas A large lobulated gland of vertebrates that secretes digestive enzymes and the hormones insulin and glucagon.
Skin - Not Sun Exposed (Suprapubic)
Skin - Sun Exposed (Lower leg)
Small Intestine - Terminal Ileum
Spleen A highly vascular ductless organ that is located in the left abdominal region near the stomach or intestine of most vertebrates and is concerned with final destruction of red blood cells, filtration and storage of blood, and production of lymphocytes.
Stomach A dilatation of the alimentary canal of a vertebrate communicating anteriorly with the esophagus and posteriorly with the duodenum.
Testis A typically paired male reproductive gland that produces sperm and that in most mammals is contained within the scrotum at sexual maturity.
Uterus An organ of the female mammal for containing and usually for nourishing the young during development previous to birth.
Vagina A canal in a female mammal that leads from the uterus to the external orifice of the genital canal.
