Virtual Frog Dissection Kit

NOTE: Fluffy has gotten a facelift.

This award-winning interactive program is part of the "Whole Frog" project. You can interactively dissect a (digitized) frog named Fluffy, and play the Virtual Frog Builder Game. The interactive Web pages are available in a number of languages.
Dive into Entry to the kit (you must be able to view images). the kit.
Help and additional information available include a tutorial, an overview of how the system works, a paper that was presented at WWW '94, and a paper that was published in COMPCON '95. For some other interesting frog and biology-related pages, see Also of Interest.

Frog statistics, including how many times it has been accessed in different languages.

We welcome your suggestions and comments. Comments from teachers and students are especially welcome. Please note, however, that we are computer scientists, not biologists. We will not be able to help you with your homework (see biology-related information for help). Also, we don't know of any animals other than the frog that have a computer-graphics based virtual dissection page. We get frequent requests for this information. If someone has done such a page for a fetal pig, cat, etc., we'd be interested in hearing about it.
