- a essentially is adipose tissue. Not part of the skin, but it does anchor the skin to underlying organs and provides a site for nutrient (fat) storage. The tissue serves as a shock absorber and insulates the deeper tissues from the extreme temperature changes occurring outside the body. (responsible for women's curves).
- b a clear, watery fluid secreted by the cells of a serous membrane.
- c the upper dermal region. It is uneven and has peglike projections from its superior surface, called dermal papillae, which indent the epidermis above.

- e a scale-like modification of the epidermis that corresponds to the hoof or claw of other animals. Has a free edge, a body(visible attached portion), and a root (embedded in the skin).

5 True/False questions
Sebaceous gland → found all over the body, they produce sweat, important in part of the body's heat-regulating equipment. Supplied with nerve endings that cause them to secrete sweat when the external temperature or body temperature is high.
Exocrine Gland → glands that have ducts through which their secretions are carried to a body surface (skin or mucosa)
Eccrine gland → glands that have ducts through which their secretions are carried to a body surface (skin or mucosa)
Epidermis → the deep layer of the skin; composed of dense, irregular connective tissue
Dermis → the deep layer of the skin; composed of dense, irregular connective tissue
