The anatomy of a pig and a human are very similar. Both are placental mammal, which means the fetus receives nourishment from the mother through the umbilical cord. Both species are also omnivores. These two things lead to the digestive track and layers under the skin to be similar. Both have complex systems that allow nutrients and dissolved gases to enter and leave individual cells throughout the body. Basically the internal cavity of the pig is very similar to that of a human, it is only smaller. The heart is located at the same place, between the lungs, the liver and a gall bladder look almost like the humans, and the whole digestive system is extremely similar to humans' digestive system. Thought pigs and humans are similar there are still some differences. One of the major differences is the facial expression; the pigs have bigger ear, they also have a tail. Also pigs have different feet, position and number of toes on their feet

Robert Stuart is cool.
Well, we both have a brain, spine, lungs, ears, nose, eyes, pretty much the same thing except the shape of how the skeleton is put together and how many bones there are. Many …people don't classify horses like humans because they cant see color but... Anyways yes they are the same in most ways but in other ways no. Hope that this helped. -Okapi
There are very many similarities
Aflong aflong kong.
The pig and human skeletal system are almost the same. They both have a jaw that is directly connected to the skull. They also possess expanded nasal chambers and 7 neck b…ones. The only difference between the two systems are the shapes of the bones and its orientation because humans are bipeds and pigs walk on all fours.
mouses and humans both can be homosexuals
They are actually relatively similar. It's common for anatomy classes to dissect baby pigs as their organs/organ locations mimic those of a human.
the rat and human anatomy is so simaler, its easy to tell the rat from the human. but it gets confusing. the rat has the same anatomy as a human but its smaller. if you …do a disection of a rat you will find that the organs are there but there all moved over. some are in the same spots but then some are moved to a more safer spot. try a disection some time and you will see for yourself. D.K.
Actually, the anatomy of a pig is very similar to that of a human. Pigs are often used as human analogs in tests and dissections. Although skeletal structure may differ becaus…e humans are bipedal and pigs walk on all fours, internal organs are relative in shape and size.
the digestive system is similar... both have a mouth, stomach and intestine
they have the same blood organs and the some DNA cells.
I think the major thing (internally anyways) would be that pigs have a coiled large intestine and humans have an organized one, differentiated into three parts.
Since humans are classified as Primates the question could be considered to be faulty - however, it is fairly clear that what was probably intended was to ask about simila…rities between human anatomy and the anatomy of OTHER primates. Speaking in generic terms we both have opposable thumbs. We also have that extra layer of fat on the side of our palms. We both live in groups with a hierarchical structure. We both have minimal facial hair allowing us to communicate with each other through facial expressions. Several facial muscles allow this to occur.
There's an entire college course devoted to this (well, it does include other animals also) called Comparative Anatomy. One of the more significant differences, of course, is …that pigs are quadrupeds and humans are bipeds, meaning the structures of the limbs, spines and pelvis are oriented very differently.
they both have a reproductive system, they both have hearts, lungs......
