Virtual Pig Dissection -- Requires Shockwave plugin... hopefully it can work for you
Fetal Pig Dissection
Another virtual pig dissection -- illustrations, not pictures
More pictures!

nares, mammary papillae, genital papillae, scrotal sac, ankle, wrist, hoof, shoulder, pinnae (ear), tongue, epiglottis, esophagus, stomach, pyloric sphincter (at the end of the stomach right before duodenum), duodenum, ileum/jejunum (aka the rest of the small intestine!), colon, rectum, anus, liver, gall bladder, common bile duct, pancreas, diaphragm, lungs, heart (right/left atrium/ventricle), thymus gland, thyroid gland, trachea, salivary glands, kidney, ureter, bladder, umbilical artery (the two tubes flanking the sides of the bladder), umbilical vein, uterine horn, larynx, soft palate, hard palate, spleen
