Frog Vs Human Anatomy
The human digestive system
Instead of ears and eyelids like we have, frogs have tympanic membranes, which are like eardrums located on the head, behind the eyes. They also have the nictitating membrane, which protects their eyes from foreign objects from harming their eyesight.
Tympanic and Nictitating Membranes
The cloaca is a hole used for the excretion of wastes and for reproduction, amphibians have ovaries and testes, like we do, except it's on the inside. To reproduce, sperm exits through the cloaca, as does waste when releasing the body's waste.
The frog anatomy is actually very similar to the human anatomy. We have almost all the same organs that function in similar ways, with only a few minute differences.
The mouth is used to hold food in the beginning of chemical digestion.
The esophagus is the tube that starts from the mouth and leads to the stomach
The stomach is used to digest food
The liver secretes digestive juices known as bile, which is used for the digestion of fats
The gallbladder stores bile.
The Small Intestine
The small intestine absorbs nutrients from food
The Large Intestine
The large intestine absorbs water and vitamins
The rectum is like the storage space for waste
The lungs are used to breathe
The trachea is the part of the throat that we breathe through
The heart pumps and sends blood around body
The arteries are parts of the heart that pump blood
The kidneys filter out wastes located in the blood
The bladder stores urine
A reproductive organ that produces female sex cells, or eggs, found only in females
Transport eggs to the uterus to be fertilized
The uterus is a major female sex organ where fertilization takes place
Where the sperm cells are created
The penis is where the sperm cells are released
