Virtual Labs: Earthworm Dissection

Slimy, mucky, clammy worms! While some students cheer at the prospect of touching and dissecting these miry creatures, others who are not as excited about the idea might want to try a virtual experience instead. For an interactive anatomy lesson without the mess, try this virtual earthworm dissection. Learn the structures and functions of segmented worms known as annelids. By studying these lower level species, it becomes easier to learn about the anatomy and structure of higher- level organisms. Enjoy the fun of a true dissection without the slime!
