Anatomical and Histological Study of Kidney in Giraffe

Dr. J. Violet Beaulah [12]


Abstract: Giraffe are the tallest living animal on earth. Kidney function of giraffe appears to be very peculiar due to the height of the animal and an unusual difference in the height between the heart and the head, the blood pressure of giraffe is substantially higher a feature that is possible due to very thick and strong capsule surrounding the kidney. Parenchyma was surrounded by a connective tissue capsule and composed of darkly stained cortex and lightly stained medulla. Renal cortex comprised of numerous renal corpuscles of different sizes, segments of proximal and distal convoluted tubule, limb of henle. In medulla segments of ascending and descending loop of henle were seen. An 18 month old female giraffe kidney was collected in 10 percent neutral buffered formalin for its anatomical and histological study.
