Animal Tissues: Introduction, Formation, Types, Mechanism 

Blood is a type of connective tissue, and muscle forms muscular tissue. Blood and muscles are both examples of tissues found in our body. 

On the basis of the functions, they perform we can think of different types of animal tissues, such as an epithelial tissue, connective tissue, muscular tissue, and nervous tissue.

Epithelial Tissue

This type of tissue that lines the surfaces and cavities of your body's organs, is no different. Epithelial tissue is like the brand name Lego: Lego has differently sized and shaped blocks, and epithelial tissue has differently sized and shaped cells. Lego blocks can be arranged into differently shaped structures, and epithelial cells can be arranged into differently shaped structures as well.

Connective Tissue

Connective tissues connect and help hold our body together. They provide internal support as well as give and maintain form to the body. They protect the body. The connective tissue can be found everywhere in the body. The connective tissue mainly consists of blood, bones, and areolar tissue.

The human body contains an average of 5.5 litres of the blood. The bones make up around 15% of the body’s weight.
