This Little Piggy....never made it to market

Well folks, this is NOT a post for the faint of heart--nor the weak of stomach! :0)

Somehow, and mind you...I haven't figured out exactly how...but somehow, I wound up having to assist in the latest dissection that my dear daughter and her dear friend had to do for their advanced biology/anatomy class...
Thankfully, most of my job was computer help (for dissection directions), and pictures. Although I did have to do some organ identification. :0( Oh, and seeking out a candle to burn for odor control. LOL

And yes, you guessed it, the subject was a fetal pig. YUCK!

I have refrained from showing the more graphic pictures (and trust me--I have them) but the two girls you see pictured here dissecting are two tough cookies! They have even gained the respect of their younger brothers! :0) Need I say more??

This was my daughter's final dissection for her homeschool career, and I daresay she is saying "Wee wee wee all the way home"!
