ew. it think it's better to dissect virtually because it saves animals from being cut up just for the sake of science.

i think you are absoulutly right, but in some jobs, like becoming a doctor, you have dissect an animal because you need to know how, but this is always a good idea, if it is not mandatory to dissect an animal, always come to this, and encougrage your teachers to do this, thats wat i did and guess wat it worked!! the teacher loved the idea and we ended up in the computer lab having more fun then ever!!! :):) but you should also use a dead animal, dont kill a live animal!!! :):(

this is one of the best sites to look at a fish dissection!!! dont kill animals to if u r going to dissect an animal you might as well use a dead one. and also go to google and type vurtual fish dissection and go to the first one and you ewill dissect a salmon by yourself online. it may gross you out but i didnt for me!

The virtual fish dissection is mad as!
congrats to those who invented it!
It's such a good resource, and will surely help alot of people, learn about the anatomy of fish and maybe other creatures to come?
