The Frog Dissection Android App is an ethical and educative alternative to live animal dissections.
This multiple award-winning app lets you experience what it is like to dissect a frog using a set of virtual tools and advanced 3D modelling.
Designed for biological and scientific accuracy, the app provides a realistic, virtual simulation of a frog dissection. The application replicates an actual dissection of a chloroformed specimen, using a full set of dissection instruments including pins, scalpel, marker, and forceps. Step-by-step instructions and 3D views provide complete imaging of the frog anatomy, helping the user visualize internal organs effectively.
Experience the life-cycle of your amphibian subject with fun and intuitive controls. The Frog Dissection Android app is a great tool for learning animal biology, while at the same time showing regard for living creatures. Enable your students to easily view and understand the dissection process, without worrying about formalin allergies, or the smell and fuss of a wet lab.
Explore the life-cycle of fascinating amphibians from tadpole to toad.
Individual 3-D organ views and information
Dissection tools like pins, marker, scissors, scalpel, and forceps
Detailed labels, information on lifecycle , and organ functions

Go on an adventure to find your very own owl pellets to prepare, dissect, and reassemble. Make sure to keep an eye out for the other forest creatures you might encounter that are part of the owl’s habitat.
The Froguts Owl Pellet adventure is both an educational and whimsical journey to discover what owl pellets are, where they come from, and how to dissect them. The primary learning objectives are to - Teach How:
• habitats are comprised of many creatures.
• owl pellet formation occurs within owls.
• predators and prey interact with each other.
• skeletons are made of many bones, and that they have similar names across animals.
• skeletons are put together.
• food webs move energy up to the predators.
• herbivores, insectivores, carnivores, and omnivores feed.
• owl pellets are handled, prepared, and dissected.
