HNC Students Extract Digestive Systems

Published 10 April

Animal Behaviour and Welfare HNC students last week extracted digestive systems from an omnivore and a herbivore.

The dissection was performed in order to evaluate the gut length and transit time. Lizzie Collins meticulously removed the small intestine from the abdominal cavity of the lamb, as shown in the picture below.

Danielle Fox is their lecturer for Animal Nutrition. She said: “Practical sessions are invaluable for learning about the anatomy and physiology of the digestive tract and they really help students to understand why correct nutrition is important in a range of species. The HNC group performed brilliantly in this session, needing very little guidance from me!”
