Also located close to blood capillaries to promote absorption of oxygen and carbon dioxide into the bloodstream. Gills: Outgrowths of the body. Creates a large surface area over which gas exchange occurs. Inside the gills, oxygen is removed for the body and carbon dioxide is delivered as waste. DIGESTIVE Small intestine: Wall is the source of enzymes that help digest proteins, lipids, and nucleotides. Its large surface area aids w/ absorption.

EXCRETORY Kidney: Contains filtering tubes called nephrons. Kidneys produce water waste able to pass through the bladder and eventually through the urethra. Nephron- Contains complex of tubules to carry waste. Is the site of filtration, secretion, and reabsorption.
