Caption: Foetus. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an eight week old human foetus. The foetus' eye, nose and hands are visible. The eighth week of pregnancy represents the end of the formative developmental stage, and the embryo becomes a foetus. It is human-like in appearance, with the head large in proportion to the body. All major organ systems are formed by the eighth week, but require much growth since the foetus is only about 3 centimetres in crown-rump length. Magnification: x12 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
