  3. lesser omentum
    the double layer of peritoneum that extends from the liver to the lesser curvature of the stomach and the start of the duodenum.
  4. greater omentum
    A peritoneal fold passing from the stomach to the transverse colon, hanging like an apron in front of the intestines
  5. peristalsis
    waves of muscular contractions, moves bolus  further down
  6. segmentation
    random ringlike constrictions that mix and churn contents with intestinal secretions
  7. epiploic appendages
    Fatty tissue on the out wall of the large intestine.
  8. enamel
    strongest structure of the entire body, hard part of tooth.
  9. periodontal ligament
    ligament anchors the teeth to maxilla and mandible.

  12. intestinal villi
