My first observational dissection.
I have purposefully left out the torso this time, as I do not want to startle anyone looking at this blog. Forewarning for next time though…
I though you might be curious to see that swallow’s eyes look exactly like blueberries.
…its tongue in the upper right in the Borax powder.
The hardest part was that it had mud collected on the underside of its beak for building its home. This one was hit by a car. (I won’t mention this time what the true hardest to swallow part was… lets just say dissecting life is not as plain as textbooks draw them out to be…)
Also disclosure statement: all the animals I will be dissecting are not hunted- they are either road kill or did not survive at an animal protection center or hospital.
ps. the woman teaching me had a ‘brain pick’ holding up her hair as she did this skinning.
