This diagram shows the blood and nerve innervation of whale skin. The main area of focus is the dermal papilla, where the vessels from the dermis push the stratum basale up into the stratum granuloseum layer. The series of images along the bottom of the page demonstrate common patterns of innervation in the dermal papilla.
