Is the renal medulla lighter in color?

      I read on my textbook and here that:

      quote :

      The outer part, called the cortex, is a dark reddish brown color. The inner part, called the medulla, is lighter-colored.

      But then there are websites that says:

      quote :

      …the medulla is darker in color…the cortex can be identified by its paler color…

      I think the cortex should be darker in color since the majority of the capillaries is in the cortex(or is it?), but I can’t be sure… 😕

      Please help! Thanks! 🙂
