The muscle disection and demonstration is usually considered one of the most difficult in Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy. To complete this demonstration, the student is required to spend a great deal of time finding and disecting the muscles, before the actual learning of them can begin. This operation could be greatly facilitated, if a ready reference was available. This reference should be a previously bisected animal with the muscles labeled In such a manner that the student could make a short study to orientate himself before he started the disection of his own animal. The purpose of this project is to make such a specimen available to the students. It may be used in any course in which a study of the oat muscles is of value, but it should prove to be of greatest value in the course of Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy.
