Today in Biology I got the chance to dissect my very first frog. Even though I want to preform surgery on people in the future I hated dissecting that frog! It smelt so bad and it had liquid oozing out of it the whole time!
My teacher did let us take pictures throughout the process so I got some really good ones. The skin of the frog was really rubbery and when we cut it, it was like cutting paper. Something really funny is that my group’s frog had a six pack once we cut it open.
Not only did we get to cut it open we had to break its jaw too! But a really cool thing, is that we are dissecting all this week and I’m going to get the chance to learn the anatomy of a cat through dissection. Tomorrow I am going to get to take all the organs out of the frog. I am really excited to get to do that because I want to see what the heart of a frog looks like. I am interested in it because I want to be a heart surgeon so I want to see how different the frogs heart is to a human one.
