When you get to the site you’ll see the “Orkin” logo. To the right is a menu that allows you to select the views for the virtual dissection that include:
- Exoskeleton – Head, Thorax, Abdomen, Habitus
- Viscera – Circulatory, Digestive, Endocrine, Excretory, Muscular, Nervous, Reproductive, and Respiratory systems
Click on any one to explore this fascinating virtual lab activity.
- Index – See a list of all of the parts of the roach that are included in the virtual dissection.
- Help – Don’t miss this – it briefly explains the features included in the tutorial and how to use them.
This is a terrific way to get familiar with insect anatomy and could be used as a pre-lab introduction or as a post-lab review tool should you decide to conduct a real dissection. Try not to say, “Eewwww!”
