Frog skeleton

Description

New Zealand is home to four species of archaic frogs, which are each vulnerable to extinction. Several other frog species have been introduced to New Zealand, and these 'invasive' species can be serious threats to the native frogs. This 3D model shows a skeleton of one of the foreign frog species. The skeleton is approximately 10 cm long.
