Why foetal calf serum?

A calf is used to describe a cow that has been born. Therefore, the animal in question can't be both a calf and unborn- it must be one or the other. You wouldn't use the term fetal puppy, when you really mean fetal canine.
That being said, there are some cell lines that require the use of fetal bovine and others that use calf serum. That is a true distinction between serum types.
