The following resources can be used in your biology class for the anatomy and physiology unit that usually occurs at the end of a textbook. Older textbooks may be organized where each animal group has it’s own chapter. Newer textbooks usually contain comparative anatomy sections.
Specimens can be ordered from biological supply companies or through Amazon.
You can also view my classroom photos of the frogs, some of which are labeled.
