The digestive and respiratory systems of Batrachuperus pinchonii were studied. The arrangement of the vomerine teeth varies, such as, ˋˊ ,--and ⌒⌒. The alimentary tract consists of the buccal cavity,pharynx, esophagus, stomach, duodenum, ileum, and rectum. Thealimentary glands include the liver and pancreas. There is no obvious separation in the anterior part of liver, which constitutes approximately 80% of the total volume, but the rest is separated to form three lobes. There is no cartilage in the pars laryngea. The trachea directly connects with two lungs and the bronchus is absent.
