Are slow twitch and fast twitch muscle fibers the same size?

ofcourse not; slow twitch muscle fibers are: * smaller in diameter * red in color * depend on oxidative phosphorylation for their ATP supply * are highly vascularized (better blood supply) * have more mitochondria * more myoglobin fast twitch muscle fibers * larger * white * glycolysis is the source of ATP * less vascularized * less mitochondria * less myoglobin
