    Produces insuline and secretes it into the blood in order to control blood glucose levels (endocrine)
  27. spleen

  28. duodenum

  33. Colon (bloiled portion and descending part)
    Final place for water absorption.

    Houses bacterial that produces vitamins K and B

    filters the blood of metabollic wastes

    keep you hydrated, keep blood isotonic to your cells
  35. descending aorta
    takes oxygenated blood from heart to tissues inferior to the heart
  36. renal artery
    to supply kidneys into the inferior vena cava
  37. renal vein
    to drain blood from the kidneys into the inferior vena cava
  38. inferior vena vaca

  63. urethra/penis
    to transport urine from the urinary bladder out of the body
  64. bulbourethral glands
    produces the alkaline portion of the semen to offset the acidity of the vagina (so that "our" little spermies will be safe and fully functional)
