The urinary system consists of the kidneys, bladders, urethra, ureter and sphincter. The kidneys are responsible for taking out the liquified waste from the body in the form of urine.

The Ureters are two narrow tubes that carry urine from the kidney to the bladder. The sphincters are the circular muscles that function in keeping urine from leaking by closing tightly around the opening of the bladder.
