Frog Dissection

Sophomore Biology students are exploring the anatomy of different organisms as well as how energy is transferred within living organisms through dissection exercises.  

 

The course begins with a smaller organism, the grasshopper, followed by a bullfrog, and lastly a fetal pig, which is scheduled for Tuesday's lesson. Curious as to why frogs are so often dissection subjects, I read up on how bullfrogs provide a good overview of the organ systems of a complex living thing, as their organs can be seen very clearly when dissected compared to other animals.  Read more about it on Mental Floss, an online magazine that explores life's big and small questions.
