Arteries, veins and capillaries. Arteries are carry the blood away from the heart, veins return the blood to the heart and capillaries take blood into the smallest tissues and portions of the body. Arteries are thick, ivory and strong, veins are very thin and translucent, capillaries are delicate and small, generally clustered. Hope this helps.
