Reproduction in Animals


In which female reproductive organ does the embryo get embedded?


A female has two ovaries and each ovary produces female sex cells or gametes called eggs (ovum). One matured egg is released into the oviduct every month by one of the ovaries. The fertilization of an egg by sperm takes place in the oviduct. Both the oviduct is connected to a bag-like structure called the uterus. The growth and development of a fertilized egg into a baby take place in the uterus.
