What are the similarities of pig anatomy and human anatomy?
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

Human Anatomy is the study of structure of the human body.
Mice and humans are both mammals and hence share the vast majority of their major organ systems. Mice have hearts, lungs, stomachs, intestines, livers, brains, reproductive or…gans...the same as people. A more easy question would be, how is mouse anatomy and human anatomy different? Because we are more similar than different. Source: Me, I'm in my third year of medical school
mouses and humans both can be homosexuals
Anatomy is... the study of the human body for example: body parts and names Literally, it means "the process of cutting up"; originating from the ancient Greeks, …the Fathers of Modern Medicine. It is the study of structure and how different organs relate to one another in a body. anatomy - The science that deals with the form and structure of organic bodies; anatomical structure or organization
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.
They are interdependent. Physiology is dependent on anatomy, and visa versa. This is because function affects the form, and the form affects the function. The difference is th…at anatomy is about the parts, and physiology is about how the parts work together. For example, a car is made of tires, an engine, body, windshield, steering wheel, etc. That is the anatomy. The way the engine works by internal combustion is a process, like metabolism in our bodies which is the physiology.

both frog and man have a vertebral column,and a developed circulatory system. but the difference is frog has 3 lobed heart.
Human anatomy is all about human organs and body systems.
Anatomy is the study of the body.
rats are rats and people are people are people Besides that obvious fact. The thoracic cavity of a rat is much smaller than the abdomino-pelvic cavity but in humans they are a…lmost the same size. Rats also do not have gallbladders. There are many other differences but these are the ones I know. Sorry :/ Rats lungs are divided into four lobes on the right side and only one on the left, humans have three on the right and two on the left side. Rats have three liver lobes humans have four. Humans have 2 lobes of lung, a rat also has 2. A major difference is that humans have one lobe of liver (I think) and Rat's have 7 (positive).
Actually, there are more similarities than there are differences. Excluding the paws, hands, and feet, the rest of the skeletal structure is the same except the size and shape… of the bones. For example: A human, a cat, and even a giraffe all have the same number of bones in their necks, seven.
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.
A fetal pig is a good choice to dissect in order to understand human anatomy because it is similar. The layout of the organs is very similar.
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.
