The Reason Why The Experimental Article And Small Animal Dissection Experiments Choose Mice, Rabbits, And Bullfrogs.

It is necessary for medical students to use small animal anatomy to learn. Animals commonly used for dissection in medical schools include mice, bullfrogs, and rabbits. Why are these three animals used when selecting subjects and subjects for dissection?

Because these three animals are relatively small in size, they are easy to control during anatomy and the anatomy process is not easy to make mistakes. Moreover, the reproduction and breeding of these three kinds of animals is very simple, easy to breed in batches, relatively small in variables, and convenient to obtain.

And the last and most important point is that the appearance of these three animals is quite different from that of people, so it can alleviate people's resistance and fear. However, their body structure and genes are similar to those of the human body, so the anatomy process and the experimental results obtained are more referential.
