Abstract

Light microscopic studies on the skin of Zovawk pig was conducted to identify the skin thickness by using male and female animals. The skin of Zovawk pig consisted of epidermal layers and dermal layers. The epidermal layer thickness varied considerably in different regions of the body. In male Zovawk, the maximum thickness of epidermis was observed on the dorsal neck by measuring 0.12 ± 0.004 mm while the minimum thickness was on the ventral thorax which measured 0.10 ± 0.002 mm. In female, the maximum thickness of epidermis was observed on dorsal thorax by measuring 0.09 ± 0.004 mm and minimum was on the ventral neck by measuring 0.06 ± 0.007 mm. After comparing between male and female animals, the total skin thickness in all the regions studied showed significant in thickness.
