Caption: Umbilical cord. Light micrograph of a section through an umbilical cord showing on of the two umbilical arteries (dark pink). Surrounding connective tissue is pink. The umbilical cord is the tube that connects a developing foetus to the placenta inside a mother's womb. It brings oxygen and nutrition to the developing foetus, and takes away waste products. Magnification: x4 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
