Rabbits are an ideal organism to utilize for this purpose because the muscles are large enough for students to identify, but not so heavily-muscled that they appear convoluted and difficult to differentiate. This project prepared a laboratory procedure that future students will use to dissect rabbits and learn about muscular anatomy.What is the appendicular skeleton of a rabbit?
The appendicular skeleton includes the pectoral and pelvic girdles and their appendages. The pectoral appendages are the forelimbs, and the pelvic appendages are the hind limbs. During your dissection of the rabbit, refer to the skeleton diagram to identify the bones that you encounter.What can we learn from rabbit muscular dissection and identification?
This project focused on muscular dissection and identification. By carefully removing the skin and fascia off of a rabbit specimen, students can observe the various muscles that allow movement and motion in the animals that many of them see, study, or work with daily.
