Wiring a Frog (1894)

A frog should be skinned through the mouth and the entire vertebrae column should remain intact attached to the skin of the back in order to preserve the peculiar characteristic shape of the back. The legs are made with cotton and the body is filled with the same material through the mouth. The of manner wiring is clearly shown.
