Dissecting actual frogs in science class is/was kind of a normal thing to do. With this new model, students won’t be as disgusted, and frog species won’t be dying off. Introducing the SynFrog, a hyper-realistic synthetic frog that can completely  replace actual frog dissections.

Approximately 3 million frogs are killed annually for science lessons. That is why SynDaver-the world’s best manufacturer of hyper-realistic, synthetic human and animal surgical trainers, partnered with PETA, to create this special new model. The SynFrog is free of formaldehyde and formalin and contains removable and anatomically correct organs that accurately mimic living tissue.

The little creations are kind of pricey at $150 apiece, but I believe it is better than the actual dead frog! “With SynFrog, there’s no longer any need to harm real frogs for the sake of enhancing the educational experience” reads the product bio.
