Frog Dissection

Frogs belong to the class Amphibia, and live both on land and in water. One of the best ways to learn about adult amphibian anatomy is to dissect a preserved frog and see how all the organs fit together inside its body. As members of the class Amphibia, they must return to water to reproduce. Eggs are laid and fertilized in water.

The procedure of frog dissection familiarizes a student with basic anatomy. Below are some photos of the students working on their projects.
