DISSECTING A COCKROACH

#funny #medical

I’m sure this is something most of you might not have experienced unless you are a science student.I didn’t do this in med school(we deal directly with dead bodies here 😉 .I did this 4 years back when I was an innocent ,ignorant kid just out of high school.But ,damn this experience sure scandalized me for life.

Let me tell you how it is done.

Step 1- dip the live cockroach in water mixed with surf excel (or any detergent of your choice).This is to kill the cockroach and to make them sparkly(the attendant picked them from the neighbourhood drainage apparently).

Step 2 – pick the cockroach of your choice from the bucket with your bare hands( you get negative marks if you use gloves) and pin them to a board with 2 pins (one for the head and the other for the rear end).

Step 3 – Use a scissors and cut off it’s wings and limbs.

Step 4 – Use a dissecting blade (you can use our domestic GILETTE blade if you are up for it  😉 no harm there) and make an incision from the top to the bottom of the cockroach and separate the skin.

Step 5 – White gooey matter will ooze out which you can separate with your forceps. 

Step 6 – Tada!!!  Ladies and gentlemen  I now present to you the digestive tract of the cockroach in its full glory!

We also dissected an earthworm but I personally prefer cockroaches because they are less smelly. 😉

The result of this experience was that the next time I see a girl(or a guy for that matter )screaming in panic when they see a cockroach. I’m like 

‘My lady , do you want me to kill your enemy and present it’s head as an offering to you? Your wish is my command!!!’

    • I think there must be over 3000 species atleast and their scientific names? Dude , I haven’t exactly been in regular contact with them in the past 3 or 4 years( I’m kinda horrible at maintaining relationships;-) and they haven’t bothered to ping me on whatsapp…lol
      I don’t really remember yaar …uh it’s something with P… though some Periplana something(do google it if u are really curious!)

  1. Haha, Med student here too.High five!
    Unfortunately our college didn’t include these dissections as part of the curriculum so ended up directly dissecting the human body in first yr and now the idea of a human body dissection seems just like another day’s work but that of a cockroach makes me go, ‘yuck’ 😉
