                                     Under epithelia
                                     Mesenteries

     2.     Dense (fibrous)
            a.     Regular           Ligaments
                                     Tendons
                                     Aponeuroses
            b.      Irregular        Dermis
                                     Submucosa
                                     Periosteum
                                     Perichondrium
                                     Epimysium
                                     Epineurium

     3.     Adipose (fat)            Hypodermis
                                     Padding around viscera
                                     Greater omentum

     4.     Fluid                    Blood

B.   Supportive connective tissues
     1.    Cartilage
           a.      Hyaline           Embryonic skeleton
                                     Articular surfaces
                                     Nose, trachea, larynx
                                     Costal cartilages
            b.      Fibrous          Intervertebral disks
                                     Pubic symphysis
            c.      Elastic          External ear
                                     Epiglottis

     2.     Bone
            a.   Cancellous          Epiphyses of long bones
