|DESCRIPTION||The egg cell, or ovum, is the female reproductive cell. Unlike the sperm, the egg cell is large. It contains cytoplasm and unwound DNA, which promotes internal movement and flow. When the sperm and egg meet, they make a zygote that will grow and divide to become a full person. This is a cute gift for health teachers, gynecologists, or expecting parents.|
|NAME||Ovum comes from the Latin: Ovum=egg.|
|ACTUAL SIZE||About 0.15mm, which is 1.5 times the thickness of a sheet of paper.|
|HISTORY||1827- Karl Ernst von Baer discovered the mammalian ovum.|
|FASCINATING FACTS||Limited: Women are born with a finite number of eggs and they do not produce more throughout life.
Big: The egg cell is the largest cell in the human body.
