Amniotic Fluid

  1. Jan 21, 2004 #1
    What are the properties of Amniotic fluid?
    Texture? Viscosity? Smell? Taste? Etc?

    Does it decay and "rot" like any other organic substance?
    How long does it take to break down?
    Does it go through stages?

    What are the "ingredients"?
    Can we artificially create it?
    Is there any reason to?
    Has anyone?

    Is it common to all animals?
    How does it differ from one animal to the next?

    What are some of the surprising properties of it?
    Anything else you can share?

    Thanks for the links.
    I will check them out.
    I didn't think anyone was going to reply.
    (except maybe someone making a smartass comment about the taste thing )

    Well I didn't find anything regarding taste.

    I figured I would give this one another try.
