Head and heart development in post-hatching stages (66-168 h). (A) post-hatching stage (66 h); (B) early pharyngula period (72 h); (C) high-pec stage (96 h); (D) protruding-jaw stage (120 h); (E) open-mouth stage (144 h); (F) one-week larvae (168 h). (G-I) The developing heart at 66 h (G), 96 h (H) and 168 h (I).
