Anyone want some gizzards?

Today was an interesting day. My oldest did science out of Apologia. Can you guess which one he is doing. Yes, Biology! He hurried along this book to get to the dissection part. I know some of you will not like this post but some will and for the purpose of those that don't mind this here you go. Plenty of pictures thru the whole process.

So he read what to do then took the work out and pinned it to the tray. It was a bit difficult to cut thru the skin. It said to try not to cut the intestines while cutting thru the thing but of course that is easier said than done.
Next is the pictures you have all been waiting for. I know, I know some of you will say....eeewwwwww.

Don't forget to enlarge the pictures to see it better. I know some of you will say...aaahhh no thanks! Come on!

Anyone up for some gizzards? hehehe He had fun doing this. Can you tell? Yes, that is a gizzard on the end of that thing.

My story: in 7th grade we dissected frogs and I got scolded and sent out of the room....... after we had removed the leg I found you could make the "hand" open and close by tweaking the tendon with your tweezers. How cool is that?? Anyway, I just couldn't help but show the sissy girl behind me this cool trick.... repeatedly.... she complained and I got in trouble he he he
