Alternative to the Frog Dissection

Students who cannot perform the actual frog dissection can use this alternative to learn the parts of the frog and receive credit for the dissection.

Keep in mind, there is no substitute for actually viewing the real structures on the frog and having the real experience of dissection. Many students will remember the frog dissection long after they have left school. However, it is understood that some students opt out for moral reasons, or some cannot complete the dissection due to health reasons.

Preparation for the Lab Test

Students in class will be taking a test over the frog where they will need to identify structures on a dissected and pinned frog.

You will either be doing this with the class or taking the online version of the lab test - see your instructor for details.

To prepare for the test, visit the Ultimate Frog Anatomy Review for practice tests.

Print out a copy of the frog labeling review guides to complete and turn in to your instructor.
