So ever wondered what would happen if biology lessons is to be undertaken at Equestria? Seems like each of the Mane 6 has their own way to tackle the issue of Frog Dissection: A Closer Look At Life
Inspired by a few weeks ago when we did this on a lab practical session. Intriguing!
No Frogs are harmed in the making of this comic, also, please ask Fluttershy to defibrillate all flat-lining frogs in the future

Me: Well done, Applejack, very efficient.
Applejack: Thanks partner.
Me: Rainbow, give me that! *snatches stopwatch from her*.... Now, on your mark, get set... GO! *click stop watch*
*10 seconds later*
Rainbow Dash: Done!
Me: *clicks stopwatch* 10 seconds, a new record! Bro hoof!
*we brohoof each other*
Twilight: *Speaks in techo jargen I don't understand*
Me: You know what, I'm not even going to try to understand...
Me: It's okay Rarity, you don't have to do it. Instead, there something else you can do for me...
Rarity: What? I'll do anything to get out of this.
Me: Go to the school library and research why dissecting frogs is wrong and what alternatives there could be. Then, use the info you gained and write a two page paper. Understood?
Rarity: Yes. I will be back by the end of the day.
Me: Pinkie, your suppose to dissect the frog...
Pinkie Pie: What?! That's mean. I can't do that!
Me: That's fine Pinkie Pie. I have a alternate plan for this situation. Go to the school library, and work with Rarity on the research of why dissecting frogs is wrong, and what alternatives there could be. Okay?
Pinkie Pie: Okie Dokie Lokie!
Me: Wait, wait, Fluttershy, Its okay!
Fluttershy: But-But he's...
Me: Not real!
Fluttershy: ... Huh?
Me: It's one of the alternatives I told Pinkie and Rarity about. Its' a fake frog used for dissections instead of a real frog. You can cut it open like a real frog and remove its rubber insides, and still learn all about a frogs insides. So go ahead and give it a try.
*a few minutes later*
Fluttershy: A-all done... These parts look so real.
Me: Good job, Fluttershy. And their suppose to. *pats her on the back* Again, good job.
End of day:
Me: Well done, all of you, you did a successful dissection, and I hope you learned a lot...
*Pinkie and Rarity walk in*
Rarity: Here you are sir, a two page paper, as requested.
Pinkie: Yep, here you go!
*I take the two papers. I read Rarity's first, then Pinkie's*
Me: *nods* Good work, both of you. Well researched and well written. As I was saying, I hope all six of you learned something new today, and you all get A's!
AJ: Good work
RD: You 'can' take your time
Twi: I know you want it to be perfect, but c'mon
Rari: It's ok, you don't have to push yourself
PP: You do realize it's dead...right?
Flutter: Where did you get that?
Anyway, my point is, the teacher might let you pass on it, but still expect to do some work that has some sort of relevance to what your doing.
Now, again, they might not let you pass on it, I've only been to one class that did frog dissection. I guess it depends on the teacher.
There was a college science class that let me "dissect" a piece of owl poo to try and find out what the owl had eaten. Icky? Yes. Kinda cool in a weird kinda way? Most defiantly. (Don't worry, they let us use hand sanitizer after the class)
Fluttershy's panel is supposed to be the kicker, and it is pretty funny, but I somehow still enjoyed Pinkie's throwing a party for the corpse more.
Dr. X: I believe she is attempting to........ revive the frog.....
Raven: ........... Well, that's better than what I expected.
