2 Comparing frogs with humans Frogs have a lot of the same organs that humans do. By dissecting a frog it will allow us to learn about the structure and function of some of our organs.AmphibiansMAMMALSSmooth SkinHairLays EggsBear Live YoungMetamorphosisDevelops inside mother
3 Let’s take a look at our specimen Notice the coloration of the frog. What is the advantage?
4 External Anatomy - What will we see on the outside of the frog? Eye with MembraneEar (tympanum)Webbed Hind Feet
5 External Anatomy – Examining the Mouth Area To examine the mouth area you will need to use your scissors to cut the sides of the mouth slightly.
