. Opening up the Pig

When opening the pig it was quite surprising. It took a slow movement to get to this point though.
It was ecspecially hard to worry about rupturing the organs. I had to use a probe and my fingers gently.
Some problems that i faced would have to be cutting or thinning any part of the pig i am not suppost to.
The pig is so fragile and has so many layers that you must see, i admit it was a little hard.
The biggest surprise i think i would have to say is how all the organs in the pigs body were placed
so neatly and spread apart that you could indicate what organs were there.

2. Compare and contrast procedures used in opening the clam, crayfish, starfish and pig.

When opening up the organsims studied it was quite shocking. I often did not know what surprises were going to come, considering i have
never disected a fetal pig. During dissection for the clam it was very easy. The clams protective outter shell was easy to get open.
We had our hands to use and did not have to worry about being to careful. You could just open in and see the organs inside.
As time and different dissections passed it was getting more difficult. The starfish was another step up, I was required to use
a tool, such as the scissors. The crayfish was also a more difficult one, because you had to uncover the exoskeleton and
the organs were in much different spaces than our own. The fetal pig was the hardest out of all of them, due to the amount
of thin skin, 3 muscle layers, and organs that could easily be ruptured. The biggest surprises between all of the organisms dissected
would have to be the insides. And how different they are in each organsim. The fetal pig was the most shocking, because its organs
were so well packed and placed that you could most defanitly tell what each organ was.
