The present study was conducted on the 24 goat foeti of either sex ranging from 42 days to full term gestation. In all goat foeti the pancreas lied in the abdominal cavity partly on right and partly on left side of median plane. Left and right lobes were creamy white in color and were fused to form an irregularly quadrilateral mass. From 53 days onwards the topographic location of foetal pancreas was changed in relation to adjacent organs. The biometric parameters viz: weight, length and width of the pancreas were significantly increased with the advancement of foetal age.
