BSL Biology Glossary - pancreas - definition

Definition: The pancreas is a tadpole-shaped organ in the lower left side of the body. The food comes down through the stomach and goes past the pancreas. The pancreas squirts a liquid into the partly digested food. The liquid helps the food break down and pass through the digestive system.
