  • 1. Frog Anatomy Lab Ms. Polson Biology November 15, 2009
  • 2. Frog Facts
    • Classified as amphibians, Anura
    • Tadpoles: aquatic and herbivores
      • gills
    • Adults frogs: land or water, carnivores
      • cutaneous respiration, lungs
    • Camouflage
    • Brain less developed
    • Three chambered heart
  • 3. Amphibians Provide Benefits to Humans 1. T he glands of some frog species contain 20- 30 chemical compounds used to produce antibiotics 2. Chemical in the skin can make a painkiller 200 times stronger than morphine 3. Some amphibians (like salamanders) can regrow their tails if bitten off by a predator. Researchers are trying to develop new ways to help humans who have lost limbs due to accidents or birth defects. 4 . Gastric brooding frog of Australia might provide answers for humans suffering from gastric ulcers
  • 4. Frog Life Cycle
  • 5. Sexing Frogs
    • Determine sex:
      • Look at hand digits on forelegs
      • Male
        • thick pads on “thumbs”
        • usually smaller than females
      • Female
        • normally larger in size
  • 6. Why Study Frogs?
    • Similar to humans
      • skin, bones, muscles and organs
      • skeletal system, nervous system, circulatory system, digestive system, urinary system, reproductive system
    • Frog anatomy is much simpler
      • no ribs or diaphragm
  • 7. Anatomy I
  • 8. Anatomy II
  • 9. Anatomy III
  • 10. Dissection Tools
    • Gloves (non-latex)
    • Dissecting tray
    • Scissors
    • Forceps
    • Ruler
    • Magnifying glass
    • Dissection pins
    • Dissection manual
    • Frog
  • 11. Lab Safety
    • You will wear goggles, gloves and apron throughout the dissection
    • Do not dissect specimen while holding it
    • Cut away from your body and away from other students
    • Never ingest specimens
    • Do not remove specimen parts from lab
    • All dissection parts will remain in the dissection tray at all times
    • Properly dispose of dissected materials
    • Keep work station clean at all times
    • Using aseptic techniques clean lab
    • bench at end of class
    • Wash hands after handling specimen
