Incision 4: First Muscle Incision
Repeat the incisions, this time through the abdominal muscle.
  • You will find it easier to begin the vertical incision by lifting the muscle layer with theforceps Do this between the rear legs of the frog..
  • Make a small cut with the scalpel.
  • Using the scissors, continue the incision up the midline to a point just below the front legs.
  • Be careful that you don't cut too deeply. The muscle is thin. It is easy to damage the organs underneath.
