Bladder Blogg Bladders and eyes and surgery, oh my! A blind blue heron was recently operated on to fix its broken corneas. A surgeon covered the corneas with bits of pig bladder, which is known to help tissue regenerate. For now the bird gets to stay in a pond full of fish; here's hoping he'll recover enough to see 'em!
Picture 10Considering the fact that I look at internal organs all day long for a living, my score on the name all the internal organs in four minutes quiz is shamefully bad. I only got 15 out of 24 total organs, isn't that pathetic? Granted, it was mainly because I didn't really read the directions and forgot to pluralize things like parathyroids and ovaries (and jeez, who knew the esophagus would be included, but skin wouldn't? And they rejected spelling gallbladder as one word. I say, look it up in the dictionary, bitches). Anyway, learn from my mistakes, pluralize,  and take the quiz. The clock does start ticking right away, so be ready to go when you click on the link and don't dawdle like I did.
