Document Description

Abstract
This project was aimed at determining the difference between the digestive system of a frog and tadpole. The apparatus used included; blotting pins, scalpels, and anaesthesia and hand lens. It involved dissection of the specimens and carrying out observations and discussions. After dissection; the specimens were compared and appropriate diagrams drawn and labelled. However, these diagrams were not drawn to scale because the hand lens did not allow that.
