This extra-large preserved grass frog has a body length of 4.5" to 5.5" and is an excellent dissection specimen. Arteries are injected with red latex and veins are injected with blue latex to easily trace the vascular system.
The large size and injected vessels of this preserved grass frog specimen make it superior for frog dissections. Internal organs, organ systems, and external structures are easy to locate and identify. The genus of this grass frog is typically Rana forreri.
Whether in a middle school, high school, or college biology class, dissection labs give students memorable life science experiences and are wonderful first-time dissection specimens. Dissecting a frog is a great hands-on activity for teaching biology and environmental science in the home and science classroom.
Find scalpels, dissecting pans, and all of the essential dissecting tools to begin your hands-on exploration of frog anatomy!
10+ pricing is based on bulk-packed specimens. When necessary, you will receive a combination of 10-packs and individually packed specimens to fill your order.
Note: Specimens are initially preserved with a formaldehyde solution, the best animal tissue fixative. The formaldehyde is then displaced first with water and finally with a glycol solution to produce a moist, low-fume specimen which will not decay over time.
