Frog Dissection || One Small Step for Man, One Giant Leap for Frogs
Learn how to dissect a frog in this video, which also covers the external and internal anatomy and physiology. In this simple dissection of a frog, you’ll learn various parts of the vertebrate anatomy.
Frogs are very interesting animals, and there’s a lot to learn about their anatomy. In this video, you’ll learn general information about frogs, which will be tied into the frog’s many anatomical structures. We’ll also explain how each organ’s structure connects with its function.
Anatomy and physiology are fundamentally linked, and learning about the structures of anatomy and connecting them to physiological functions are a great way to achieve a deeper understanding of both concepts.
This dissection lab is for anyone who is curious about frog anatomy, wants to cover amphibian anatomy for AP Biology, missed the frog dissection during biology class, or just wants to have a fun time. The video will teach you how to dissect a frog step by step, and review the external and internal anatomy of the frog.
In this video, we’ll cover the following structures:
Nictitating membrane Heart
Tympanic membrane Lungs
Leg muscles (skeletal) Small intestine
Flexor/extensor muscles Mesentery tissue
Skin Large intestine
