  African giant pouched rats are currently explored as laboratory model of haematological investigations but few detailed anatomical descriptions have been made of their spleen, limiting their use for such biomedical research. We studied the architecture of the spleen in six adult and clinically healthy African giant pouched rats by gross observation and light microscopy. The spleen was a long slipper-shaped and dorso-ventrally flattened organ lying on the left lateral surface of the abdominal cavity, medial to the lateral abdominal wall and lateral to the greater curvature of the stomach. Statistical analysis showed an average spleen weight of 3.31 g (±0.54) and length of 6.44 mm (±0.48). The spleen constituted 0.313% of the body weight and 2.069% of the nose-rump length. There was a very strong positive correlation between body weight and spleen weight (r = 0.958).

  The study was carried out to elucidate on the macroscopic structure of the medulla oblongata of the grasscutter. A total of ten matured, apparently, healthy African grasscutters were used to investigate the morphologic and morphometric features of the medulla oblongata. The mean body weight and brain weight were 2600±194.95 g and 12.15±0.48 g, respectively. The ratio of the brain to body weight was approximately 1:214. The mean weight of the medulla oblongata was found to be 1.104±0.10 g and this accounted for about 9% of the total brain weight. The mean lengths of the whole brain and medulla oblongata were 4.945±0.091 and 1.376±0.082 cm, respectively. The gross anatomical features of the medulla oblongata were typical of that observed in terrestrial mammals however slight structural differences were observed.
