Frog Disection Project
Transcript of Frog Disection Project
The External Anatomy of the frog describes its exterior characteristics that describe the ways in which it looks.
Dorsal Side Color- Dark Brown
Ventral Side Color- Tan
Amount of Toes- 5 (Webbed) for both front and hind legs
The Frog is 12.7 Centimeters long
Nictitating Membrane Color- Light Pink
Eyeball Color- Blue
Diameter of the Tympanic Membrane- .635 centimeters
The Frog's skin feels slimy and leathery
The Frog's Mouth
The Frog uses its mouth as a means of catching prey and delivering food and air to its body
The tongue is attached to the front of the mouth.
The Eustachian tube attaches to the tympanic membrane.
The Vomarine teeth are bumpy while the Maxillary Teeth are Sand-Paper like.
The Frog's Internal Organs
There's a Throat in my Frog!
Used to equalize pressure
Used to hear sounds
Used to swallow prey
Used to intake air
Used to catch prey
On the roof of the mouth
On the inside of the mouth
On the side of the frog's head
Inside the mouth
Adjacent to the esophagus
On the bottom of the mouth
The Frog's Brain
The Frog's Bones
The frog's fat bodies help insulate the eggs and the body warm warm. They also store energy for the frog.
The stomach is where the frog intakes its food to be digested.
The frog's liver acts as a detoxification system and also produces bile, a substance that helps digest the frog's food
The black organ at the upper part of the open cavity is one of the two kidneys. They the blood through the frog.
The Brain is the control center of the frog, very similar to the nucleus of a cell.
The Fat Systems
The frog's heart is responsible for pumping the blood into all parts of the frog's body
The Urogenital System
Urogenital system includes the genitals which produce gametes and urinating systems like the bladder. The frog's eggs are produce from the Urogenital System.
The frog's lungs are used as means for the frog's blood to draw oxygen.
(Above: Frog Eggs)
The Bones of the Frog give the animal the support it needs and protect the muscles and organs they encase.
All of these structures and systems work together to create an individual living organism. By dissecting the frog we learned how the frog functions. We also got to see the proportion of the organs to the size of the frog and where they are located.
