Dear Skinologists,


See this arm (again)



nice eh ?

Covered in skin it is !!.....skin is my all time favourite biggest body keeping together organ type thing !..I luff it...ewe luff it....!

But, it hurts easily and sometime peels.....so that's one layer !

How may layers do I have ?...does an ape have the same number of layers ?..what about a pig ?......or a cat ?...or how about a sheep ?

Where's the thinnest layer of skin ?..and does it still have all the layers ?....... and the thickest part ?...where's that ?


Skin up...chill out....reveal all !!

Ta


Neil
Skin Layer Enquirer
