Anatomy-General

SUBCUTANEOUS TISSUE

1. The skin is connected to the underlying bones or deep fascia by a layer of areolar tissue.

2. Man has a blanket of fat beneath the skin, called the panniculus adiposus, which is a substitute for a fur coat in 'hairless' mammals (e.g. man, pig, etc).

3. In the panniculus adiposus are flat sheets of muscle, the panniculus carnosus - one end attached to skin and the other attached to bone or deep fascia.
