The frog model will be part of the lab practical. There are specific parts to its anatomy that must be studied. I am able to show you the labels in the pictures of the frog model. It is recommended that you view the frog model before seeing the pictures, just so that you will get an idea of what you are looking at. Also study your drawings in the lab manual. It might come in handy.
