If you dissect the frog, you will discover

Endless information about its muscles

The mechanisms of digestion and

The interior structure of its eye and brain.


You will encounter limitations, though:

Some aspects of behaviour will be hidden

The frog being dead.

    Oh, what a riot–slammed me right back to junior high school! I wonder if there was something wrong with me, that I thoroughly enjoyed doing those frogs? I’m quite sure I wouldn’t be able to, these days…God bless your day, Simon!

    • I was fascinated by Biology, but didn’t enjoy dissection – though I did see it as something we needed to do and really I was more put off by my own cack-handedness than by sympathy with the animal. I remember having to dissect some kind of flatfish and it bit me. I mean it was dead all right, but its mouth closed on my finger and it had teeth!
