Dustin Lee Frog Dissection Lab Block C: Biology Introduction: The purpose of the Frog Dissection Lab was to become familiar with the anatomy of a frog and being able to compare to other living organisms. Some of these comparisons include the circulatory and digestive systems. The frog is a good example of the body organization of vertebrates that live on land. Analysis Questions: 1. The glottis eventually leads to the larynx. The esophagus is where food is led to the stomach while air is led through the glottis to the larynx. 2. The Eustachian tube leads to the ear of the frog. These tubes are used to equalize air pressure between the middle ear and the atmosphere. 3. Frogs are able to easily absorb water through their skin (as well as oxygen). Their skin can also be used as a defensive mechanism through camouflage (some can even change color). 4. Normally the tongue of a frog is attached to the back of the jaw and folded on the base of the mouth with the tip pointing toward the throat.
