Abstract:

A study was undertaken to elucidate the gross anatomical development of reticulum of sheep during pre-natal period. For this study 12 foeti were divided into three groups i.e. Group I (0-50 days of gestation), Group II(51-100 days of gestation) and Group III(101-150 days of gestation) with 04 foeti in each group. By 32 days of gestation, the reticulum was clearly visible as a distinct compartment and it was completely concealed by the left lobe of the liver at all stages of gestation. It was positioned ventro-caudal to the rumen and revealed a pear shape at 32 days of gestation. In foeti of 32 and 48 days of age, it was observed to be located between rumen and omaso-abomasum, then it gradually shifted to left of the median plane and positioned as anterior most compartment of the stomach. It was positioned between 7th and 9th rib at terminal age of the foetal life. The surface of the reticulum appeared smooth and pale between 32 and 67 days of gestation. The tiny mucosal projections i.e. the primary reticular folds were noted at 75 days of gestation. The distinct hexagonal honey comb pattern was evident at 94 days of gestation.
