Wouldn’t it be better for frogs if students dissected a virtual frog on a computer screen rather than actually taking an X-Acto knife to a dead one?
The animal rights group PETA is paying to get frog dissection software to students in India, where an official commission called for schools and colleges to phase out the chopping up of actual animals. And if you miss the smell of formaldehyde in the morning, the 3D dissection app can be purchased for the iPad.
