Human digestive system illustrated

I don't understand why the mermaid tail didn't add a point to the score. Via.

*Previously: Mermaid anatomy drawing.

*Buy anatomy models at Amazon.


  1. This is amazing. If this were one of my student's assignments, I would have circled it and written "yes!"

  2. Seriously.. a point off for a little sketch?? Get a sense of humor, teach :-P

  3. It's obvious why the student got a point off - a merman's digestive system isn't the same as a normal man's. They actually have 4 stomachs just like cows so their body can more readily digest kelp. Plus, the gills come into play as they allow sea water to mix with the intestines to help break down the food even more. So, it's not a humorless teacher; the student simply doesn't know his merman anatomy.
