The pleural cavity of the Nile crocodile is divided into two separate cavities by means of a complete
mediastinum. The pleural cavity contains the lungs, while the heart is situated in its own cavity, the
pericardial cavity. The pleural cavity is separated from the hepatic coelom, which contains the liver, by
the post-pulmonary membrane. The hepatic coelom is separated from the peritoneal cavity by the post-hepatic
membrane. The peritoneal cavity contains the abdominal organs.
