Figure 5

a) The uterus and ovaries of an elephant fetus at 17.5 month of gestation. The ovary on the left is still enclosed within its ovarial sac (Scale bar = 50 mm). b) Ovary from a 20.2 month old elephant fetus on the left and a 6 month old calf on the right showing great shrinkage around the time of birth due to the reduction in both the size and number of interstitial cells (Scale bar = 20 mm).
