Fig. 2 Pharyngeal end of Rathke's pouch 6-10 weeks

The diagrams in fig. 2 are drawn to scale from models, and are intended to illustrate the position of the pouch and notochord in a median sagittal section of each embryo, the anterior end being to the right. The situation of the internal nasal openings is also indicated, and it can be seen that these tend rapidly to assume a higher position, until they come to open on a level with the roof of the pharynx.
