With smart phones on the rise it is no secret that the Internet is growing in the mobile world. These days you can find an app for just about anything.

One of the latest apps available comes highly rated by Apple as well as teachers, and we bet frogs probably think it’s a great idea too. According to eSchool News, the Frog Dissection app teaches students about organs and organ systems without actually having to dissect a frog. By skipping out on killing frogs for educational purposes the new app proves to be a much more eco-friendly and humane alternative for science students to learn.

Frog dissections are unethical and unnecessary. They are contributing to the depletion of wild frog populations all over the United States. Now that virtual dissection is available, it is an excellent alternative for students to learn and a great way to protect frogs.

What’s great about the app are all of its features. It’s just as informative, if not more, than dissecting a real frog. The app has 3D imaging and step-by-step instructions on the dissection procedure. The Frog Dissection app is a winner of PETA’s mark Twain Ethical Science Award, via iTunes. It’s only $3.99 and is now available on iTunes.
