The gall bladder is a pear-shaped organ, found under the
liver, which concentrates, stores and later excretes
bile into the duodenum. The gallbladder has 3 membranes:
the outer serous membrane, the middle muscular membrane,
and the inner mucous membrane. The inner membrane
secretes mucus and absorbs water. The human gallbladder
can hold between 30 and 60ml of fluid.
