The largest serous membrane of the body which lines the abdominal cavity and furnishes a more or less complete investment for the abdominal viscera except the (kidneys which are retroperitoneal), and retains them in position by its duplicatures. It is divided into two portions, the parietal that lining the wall of the abdomen and the visceral (covering the viscera). It forms a closed sac except in the female, where it communicates with the exterior by means of the oviducts.
