Great American Bullfrog

Producer: Denoyer Geppert International

This is a twice life-size vinyl-plastic replica of a sexually mature female bullfrog, Rana catesbeiana. Ten organ systems are faithfully portrayed, including a removable highly-detailed 3-chambered heart, which divides into anterior and posterior halves. Multi-level dissections expose all the viscera, the buccal cavity, the musculature of the hind leg, the brain and nervous system, the eye and optic nerve, the ear and all the bones. Half of the mandible, tongue, and glottis remove as a unit for detailed study. Strategic cutaways reveal the bronchi of the lung, stomach rugae, and the lumen of the large intestine. The model includes even such fine points as internal nares, vomerine teeth, eustachian tube, and the nictitating membrane of the eye. More than 175 hand-numbered features are identified in the accompanying key, which also illustrates the male reproductive system. Overall dimensions: 53 x 38 x 10 cm.
