Product Description

Rana catesbeiana
2005, Pen and Ink

This anatomical plate for a frog anatomy lab shows the skeletal anatomy of the bull frog from the dorsal (back) and the ventral (belly) view. This plate is part of a series of anatomical plates for Frog Anatomy Lab Manual to be used by high school biology students. It is a selection from the artist’s BFA thesis “Frog Anatomy”.

Illustrations of bones are useful because even with perfect lighting, it is very difficult to capture all the details in articulated bones with a photograph. With simple line drawing, it is easy to see where to bones start and end, how they overlap, and how each bone is shaped from the dorsal and the ventral view.

Why Scientific Illustration?

When preparing this plate, I had checked out a framed specimen of the bull frog skeleton. Unfortunately all the joints were covered in glue. Even with the actual reference, multiple references of frog anatomy were research to prepare the final illustration.
