Analyzing Frog's Anatomy

Satisfactory Essays

This week in class we dissected a frog to learn about its anatomy. We cut the frog open with a scalpel and observed its organs. Some people got females and some people got males. Going into this lab I thought that the frog's anatomy would look very different from a human’s, but I have now concluded that frog and human anatomy are very similar. Frogs and humans have similarities in their anatomy, but there are also many differences. One difference is that humans have a 4-chambered heart with 2 atria and 2 ventricles, but frogs have a 3-chambered heart with 2 atria and 1 ventricle. One similarity is most of their entire digestive system. Frogs and humans alike have a stomach, small intestine, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and a large intestine.
