Frog Dissection Kit

Item# DE-KITFROG

Get everything you need for dissecting a frog! This complete dissection kit comes with an extra-large preserved grass frog (double-injected so you can clearly see veins and arteries) plus all the dissection tools you need: full-color photographic dissection guide, #22 broad-blade scalpel, scissors, plastic forceps, pins, and a dissecting tray.

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. Plan to use specimens within one year of purchase to ensure the best tissue quality. Specimen discoloration and dryness over time is normal and does not indicate decay.

Store your specimens at normal room temperature—refrigeration is not required. Storage in attics or garages at high temperatures will damage the specimens. Once opened, specimens can be resealed in a zip-lock bag to prevent them from drying out for later use.

frog dissection kit Review by
I ordered two of these, one for my 10 year old son and one for myself, I thought we could dissect them together. Frog arrived well preserved and nicely packaged. I did not use enclosed instructions, I had my own. We learned alot and my son enjoyed the dissection, it was a nice specimen, in good shape and colored. I wish they had enclosed more pins, but I had read some reviews and picked up some extras. Otherwise the kit had everything we needed.
Fantastic Dissection Review by
I ordered an entire box of these kits for a homeschool co-op lab. The kits had everything in them for a successful lab. The full-color dissection guide was great, and had all the instruction (and photographs) needed for a great dissection. Since I ordered so many, it was helpful to have an extra box of pins. It was a bit difficult to pin the legs down into the Styrofoam tray, but those who couldn't get their pins to stick found they could make do. I found that it was worth paying the extra money for this kit rather than getting the individual cheaper frogs. These frogs were much bigger, dyed, and came with everything we needed. This kit is great for individuals or sharing. We had a great lab. I would get this kit again for our group.
only two problems Review by
The kit was great but my daughter and I had trouble pushing the pins into the foam and the frog we got was female and very messy. My daughter said the frog at school was a boy and not as messy. Overall the experience was great.
Huge Frog Review by
We ordered this frog for our homeschool science project to see inside organs. We are really studying the human body, but obviously that wasn't an option (nor did we want to do that). I have a 12, 10, and 7 yr. old. All girls. One wasn't too excited about doing it, but very interested in watching. We invited a couple of friends over that had two boys 10 and 7 and a little girl 5yrs. old. All were really interested in watching, but really the two 10 yr. olds did all the cutting. We were surprised that my 10 yr. old daughter was the most interested and was still studying the frog 30 min. after we were done. I was VERY impressed at it's size and how well you could find everything inside, I'm sure due to the dye. And they give you everything you need to do the project. I think next time when we order something though we will order the actual dissection kit separate as the board the frog gets dissected on is like and egg carton, that material, and isn't very thick so the pins, unless you put them at a very laid down angle, didn't want to stay. Overall it was a great learning tool and we will certainly order from them again. My daughter is wanting to do the fish next. We all decided that the pig is too cute and we couldn't bring ourselves to do that one :-).
