What human body organ produces Erythropoietin?
Liver and kidneys
Erythropoietin is a glycoprotein cytokine secreted by the kidney in response to cellular hypoxia; it stimulates red blood cell production in the bone marrow. Erythropoietin is also produced in perisinusoidal cells in the liver. Liver production predominates in the fetal and perinatal period; renal production predominates in adulthood.
What kind of animal is this?
The parrot head is characterized by the presence of a massive but short, strong, curved beak. The skull of birds is characterized by high lightness, which results from the lack of teeth in the jaws, and pneumatization of the bones. Birds are characterized by strongly developed orbits,

Their name derives from the Māori language, and means "peaks on the back". The single species of tuatara is the only surviving member of its order, which flourished around 200 million years ago. Tuatara are sometimes referred to as "living fossils".The species has between five and six billion base pairs of DNA sequence, nearly twice that of humans. Hatteria is considered in danger of extinction since 1895.
