A Florida school has decided to try out an alternate way to dissect frogs in science class by using a hyper-realistic synthetic frog called SynFrog.
J.W. Mitchell High School in New Port Richey was the first school in the world to use the synthetic frogs for dissections last week.
According to a news release, SynFrog contains removable and anatomically correct organs that accurately replicate living tissue.
The new tool could replace the use of frogs for dissection in schools around the world, an industry that kills at least 3 million frogs each year, according to PETA.
According to PETA, frog dissection is a practice known for fostering callousness toward animals, turning students away from careers in science and is a big contributor to the declining population of frogs in the wild.
