Difference from human embryogenesis
Most mammals develop similarly to homo sapiens; during the earliest stages of development, the embryo is largely indistinguishable from another mammal.
However, there are phenomenons found in human being not found in all other mammals, as well as phenomenons occurring in other mammals, but not in humans.
Humans but not all mammals
Mammals don't necessarily have the same human chorionic gonadotropin released from the embryo.
Mammals but not humans
The anatomy of the area surrounding an embryo or fetus, however, is different in litter-bearing animals compared to humans: each unborn animal is surrounded by placental tissue and is lodged along one of two long uterine horns rather than in the center of the pear-shaped uterus found in a human female.
Ectoderm: Surface ectoderm - Neuroectoderm - Somatopleure - Neurulation - Neural crest
Endoderm: SplanchnopleureMesoderm: Chorda- - Paraxial (Somite/Somitomere/Sclerotome/Myotome/Dermatome) - Intermediate - Lateral plate (Intraembryonic coelom, Splanchnopleure/Somatopleure)
|Extraembryonic/uterus||Trophoblast (Cytotrophoblast, Syncytiotrophoblast) Decidua (Decidual cells) - Chorionic villi/Intervillous space - Gestational sac (Amnion/Amniotic sac/Amniotic cavity, Chorion)|
|Histogenesis||Programmed cell death - Stem cells - Germ line development|
|Organogenesis||Limb development: Limb bud - Apical ectodermal ridge/AER - Eye development - Cutaneous structure development - Heart development - Development of the urinary and reproductive organs|
