HomeOnTheRanch Posted May 29, 2009 Share Posted May 29, 2009 DS is ready to do his final dissection. We bought the dead critters from Rainbow Resource to use with Apologia Biology. They've been doubled-bagged in the extra frig in the utility room since we ordered them last fall. His dad said not to bother ordering the official dissecting tools/tray. He's been using his dad's instruments from medical school, plus a few styrofoam meat trays hot-glued together. That has worked out fine for the other specimens, but wax would have probably been a lot better for the frog. The frog is too stiff. When he tries to pin it down, it springs back to the original position, pulling the pins out. Other than having his younger siblings hold the limbs down :tongue_smilie:, are there any other hints for loosening it up? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
