Caption: Healthy caecum. Endoscopic view of a healthy large intestine (colon), showing the wall of the caecum and the opening to the appendix (centre). The caecum is a pouch connected to the ascending colon, and is considered to be the beginning of the large intestine. The appendix is thought to have no function in humans, and to be a vestigial structure that lost its original function through evolution. The large intestine is mainly responsible for extracting water and salt from solid wastes before they are eliminated from the body.
