Hi! Just to let you know, I do check on this site everyday – though I am no longer adding to it. I would take it down, but it gets so many visits I’m leaving it up for a little longer. If you find anything not linking correctly, please leave a comment to let me know. Thanks!

Lower Body Muscles

Upper Body Muscles

At you will find Mrs Sullivan’s new site for General Human Anatomy. At this time, these two sites are almost identical with similar information until it can be all placed on her site. The work I have created here is almost all on her site, with a little fine-tuning. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask in a comment. Thanks!
