<anatomy> Two glands situated in the upper posterior abdominal cavity, one on either side of the vertebral column.

The kidneys are shaped like two large beans, and act as a filter. The kidney function is to filter the blood and control the level of some chemicals in the blood such as hydrogen, sodium, potassium, and phosphate and they eliminate waste in the form of urine.
