A Florida high school, has found an alternative to the well-known, but still, it’s not science class, a ritual passed down through the generations, AMERICAN junior high school.

J. W. Mitchell High School New Port Richey, is the first in the world to replace the guts, and the gore has been cut open, a slimy amphibian with an artificial, man-frogs are used for dissection labs, it is still the organs to be mirrored in it.

Nearly 100 of the synthetic frogs that were dissected by the students on Dec. 20, according to a press release from the company that created it. SynDaver is a developer of the synthetic human and animal models to be used for educational and medical purposes as well.

“So the kids are concerned, they are, they’re finger-deep in a frog’s nerve, but it’s all synthetic, so the smell is not there, the stigma is not there, they do not opt-out,” said J. W. Mitchell, Principal, Jessica Schultz, according to PETA. “Each and every child is involved in, and we have students at all academic levels in the classroom were chosen, and the teachers that we have, and they will be just fine.”

It is very important for the students ‘ learning experience, and that of the synthetic cleats as close to the real thing as possible. The company says that they have been designed in order to replicate the visual and textured characteristics of a live, female frog, and will be equipped with a type of skeleton, muscles, skin, internal organs, and the reproductive system, including eggs.

“All of the SynDaver synthetic humans, animal models, and task trainers to simulate the anatomy of the patients’ lives in great detail, including individual muscles, tendons, veins, arteries, nerves, and organ systems,” said Shalin G. Gala, PETA’s vice-president of the International, and Laboratory Methods. “The company’s proprietary, synthetic fabrics are made from water, fibers and salt. All of these are non-toxic, non-latex, tissue, it is validated against the relevant living tissue, the mechanical and physical properties.”


The use of artificial frogs into the classroom, it is also a bit more secure, as well. Dead, chemically-preserved frogs it may be dangerous to the students who are going to be without protection due to the harmful chemicals, such as formalin, or formaldehyde, officials said.

“We are very excited to announce that our industry-leading SynFrog, this is a much better way to go, as it is designed to mimic a living body. This makes it more like a living frog than in the preserved specimens, which are currently being sold to schools for dissection labs,” said Dr. Christopher Sakezles, founder of SynDaver, according to the release. “SynFrog not only looks and feels like a real frog, it is physically a safer place to dissect a real preserved frog, since it does not contain harmful chemicals, such as formaldehyde.”

The SynFrogs it can also be used after each and every use, and they eliminate the ethical dilemma that some people are talking about the killing of live reptiles and amphibians to be placed in the schools.

“We are proud to be a partner to you are found in the SynDaver to the revolutionary new instructional tool, in order to live, it is replaced by the antiquated use of the once-living frogs forever,” Gala said. “We look forward to seeing even more schools all over the world, and the establishment of a state-of-the-art technology that will not only save millions of frogs, but it’s a lot safer and more effective learning.”


The frog dissection model, for $150, it is 1 meter long and weighs about 2 lbs, according to the company’s web site.
