Hemoglobin carries oxygen to the blood, while myoglobin carries oxygen into the muscles.

That doesn't make sense does it.

Fetal haemoglobin has a higher affinity for oxygen and can therefore carry oxygen more efficiently

there is also a difference in amount of subunits: myoglobine has only 1 subunit, while haemoglobin has 4 globin subunit.

Myoglobin and fetal haemoglobin have higher affinity for oxygen then adult haemoglobin
