thighs

In humans, the thigh is the area between the pelvis and the knee. Anatomically, it is part of the lower limb. In cross-section, the thigh is divided up into three separate compartments, divided by fascia, each containing muscles. These compartments use the femur as an axis, and are separated by tough connective tissue membranes or septa. Each of these compartments has its own blood and nerve supply, and contains a different group of muscles
