Histological structure consist of epithelium surface layer, tunica albuginea, connective tissue covering the entire ovary cortex beneath tunica albuginea, the cortex contains follicles in various stages of development (primordial follicles contain a single oocyte surrounded by a single layer of granulosa cells most immature follicle found in the ovarian cortex, Primary follicle surrounded by a single layer of granulosa cells, Secondary follicle, contain two or more layers of granulosa cells. Tertiary follicle (n) fluid filled follicle visible on surface of the ovary in most species. Typically have an antrum, which is a fluid filled cavity. , growing follicles, vesicular follicles and atretic follicles. The medulla has loose connective tissue and blood vessels.
