Frog

FROG

 

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!
