    lol
    in year 9 i had to do a sheeps lung, and someone decided to give us a demonstration of what happens when you breathe in.. they got a straw inserted it into the sheep's lung and filled the lung with air in class (btw-the sheeps lung was from the butcher shop)...
    any way back to my point,
    couldnt they let the rat live til it died and then be used? it could live its life and then be used--it might sound a bit naive i know

    Depends on how it died. Odds are that the cause of death would mess something up with the disection. Not to mention it would have to be preserved quickly before the effects of decomposition occur.

    It's just not as useful to use an old dead lab animal. Nice young, succulent baby mice are fresher, and their internal organs are still fresh, so it will be more realistic to use them.

    Alright Metsuki, how do you feel about disecting pregnant mice? No, I'm not crazy it could yeild usefull information.

    Thinking is the leading cause of death among the stupid.

    Now why would you dissect a pregnant mouse when you could wait for the child to be born and dissect that too?
