Question: What are the function of the external nares, tympanum and nictitating membrane in frogs? Also give the evoltionary significance of the browspot and the prehallux.
Answer: The nares are located on the top of the head. If the frog were swimming, it could still breathe through its lungs because of their location and tympanum is the ear drum which allows the frogs to receive sound waves (tha means it can hear through them)and nictitating membrane is the thin transparent see through membrane which covers the eye of the frog when it is under water and protects the eye.Hope this answers your question.
Question: Why is the human nose shaped the way it is with the nares facing downwards? And why is the skin of the nose so different in humans than it is on other animals?
Answer: A remember reading somewhere that it had to do with humans evolving in order to swim ... but I can't find any good sources on that.
Question: Trace the path of air from the external nares to the lungs? Hi,
I'm have a problem for this question. I'm suppose to trace the path of air from the external nares to the lungs on a frog. If anyone can provide the pathway for this I'd be very grateful!
Thank you for your time! :D
Answer: External nares, internal nares, mouth cavity, glottis, trachea, bronchus, (bronchioles, alveoli.) Lung in parenthesis.
Question: Does anyone know how to trace an oxygen molecule from the external nares (nose) to the gall bladder? I need to list all the body parts that the oxygen molecule goes through to get from the nose to the gall bladder...help?
Answer: To get into the pulmonary system: Nose, nasal passages, pharynx, trachea, bronchus, bronchiole (to the terminal bronchioles), alveolar sac. (see webschoolsolutions.com/patts/systems/lungs.htm for pictures)
Then across the alveolar sac into a Red blood cell, bound to the hemoglobin molecule in the Iron pocket. Now you have to plot the circulation to the gall bladder, so....from the lungs to the heart through the pulmonary vein to the left atrium,(mitral valve) the left ventricle; out to the body through the aorta, the aortic arch, descending aorta to the celiac artery to the hepatic artery to the cystic artery....you are there!!!!!!!!!!
Question: How is the location of the nares an adpation to living in water for a frog?
Answer: the positioning allows them to come up for breathes of air by barely poking out of the water. they are less likely to give away their position to predator
Question: 1. Describe a situation in which the location of the frog's external nares would be an advantage in breathing. i have a frog dissection and need some help answering these questions.

Question: What is the path of air from the external nares to the trachea?
Answer: nares to pharynx to trachea
Question: How is the location of the nares an adaptation to its habitat?
Answer: Journal articles about nostril (nares) location just don't seem to be available on the web without joining some publisher's access group for a fee. I do have a couple of examples, though. The kiwi (ref.) is the only bird whose nosrtrils are on the tip of its beak. It feeds on underground worms and is guided by a very sensitive sense of smell. Similarly the anteater's nostrils at the tip of its long snout help it find termites. They are closable to avoid inhaling the prey. And crocodiles and rhinoceroses have nostrils on a slightly elevated part of the snout, allowing them to breathe while otherwise completely submerged. Then there are elephants...
Question: what's the cost of surgery for Elongated Soft Palate or Stenotic Nares on a Bulldog? does anybody know what either of these 2 surgeries cost for an English Bulldog?
Answer: The only way to find out is by contacting the vets in your area. You can call around to different vets and get quotes over the phone. Sometimes if you live in a big city it is worth it to travel outside the city to find a vet who will do the job for say half price. We live in a small town. Our vet is great but his prices are very low compared to most others. He doesn't have nearkly as much overhead and can charge less. As long as the vet is a qualified vet to do the surgery, everything should be fine.
Question: Does mucous normally move in the direction of the external or internal nares?
Answer: External nares.
The nares are lined with fine hairs that are designed to trap particulates so that they cannot enter the trachea and the lungs. They are also lined with mucus produced by the cells inside the nasal cavity. The mucus keeps the nares lubricated so that they do not dry out as air passes by, and it also acts to snag material before it hits the trachea so that the lungs are not irritated by pollen, dust, and other materials.
Question: What are the functions and locations of the Nares, Tongue, Estachian Tuebes, Vomerine Teeth?
Answer: Nares = nostrils, if I'm not mistaken.
Tongue, well, surely you must know where that is and what it does, though it sure depends on what species you are talking about.
Eustachian tubes connect your inner ear to your throat
Vomerine teeth, not sure, would have to look it up (see below, are we talking about frogs, by chance?)
Question: Air flow through the respiratory system starting with the external nares?
Answer: Yes. Pulmonary ventilation starts with the external nares (nasal cavity) -> then to pharynx -> larynx -> trachea -> bronchi -> bronchial tree > Lungs
Question: how are the nares an adaptation to living in water? i have this lab i need to do and i dont know the answer to this question
Answer: Fish have nostrils so that they can smell, not for breathing.
Question: Are there any vet techs out there who can answer questions about stenotic nares in a two month old peekaoo pup I have a female two month old puppy with stenotic nares. The vet gave me antibotics and childrens benadryl to help her breath. And suggested I use a humidifier(which I have) My question is .. if I'm suppose to give her one fourth tsp. of Childrens Benadryl twice a day. Can I give her a little more between if she is breathing through her mouth after 5 or 6 hours of her dose? I feel like shes not comfortable and would like to know if anyone has had this problem and share their comments and suggestion espically if you are in the vet med world. thanks. T
Answer: I was a vet tech for many years and I would ask-why antibiotics for stenotic nares? Was your pup diagnosed with an infection? As for upping the benadryl dose on your own, I wouldn't do it. That should be 6.25 mg. and without knowing how much she weighs I would be cautious. If her nares are truly stenotic she might require surgery to snip away the extra tissue. It will make her look a little funny but to leave her nares like that will cause her to develop scar tissue eventually and she will have severe breathing problems. Hope this helps!
Question: how to trace a molecule of oxygen from the external nares to the pulmonary capillaries of the lungs?
Answer: rer348 did good but forgot to include the posterior oropharyx after nasopharyx.
Question: Describe a situation in which the location of the frog's external nares would be an advantag in breathing
Answer: Floating in a pond or standing at the shore with only the eyes and nares above water. Although frogs can "breathe" through their skin, this enables them to wait in water with a low dissolved oxygen tension.
Question: how can the location of the toad's external nares be advantage in breathing?
Answer: Maybe so it can breathe while submerged (without breaking the surface with a large portion of its body)?
Just a thought.
Question: I want my nose pierced (nares/nostril) and small jewelry? What should I expect? Is there a problem with me having allergies (stuffy nose at times) etc...Would it be too much trouble?
Thanx for the answers! I'm not worried about the pain...I'm ok with pain. I have other piercings and tattoos..I'm more worried about constantly pulling it out. I know they have some with a backing on them and some that screw? in.
Answer: Hey, I got your email and seen your question so I thought I'd answer it here :)
But some down sides to a nostril piercing..
they are prone to getting "the bump", but then again you might not get it at all. I'll leave a link about the bump...
You might want to get it pierced when you don't think your sinus allergys would effect it.. like if you're allergic to a certain thing in the air that's only around in the summer per say, then you should get it pierced in the winter or fall.. some month where you won't have to worry about getting the allergies. After it's healed the allergies shouldn't effect it at all.
Yes, there is nostril jewelry with a backing (nose bone) and some with a screw (nose screw). Do not put a nose bone, as it will hurt like hell to take out/put in and could possibly tear your piercing. Screws are easier to put in/take out, and when my nostril was pierced I didn't have a problem with it falling out or anything. I made the mistake in putting a nose bone in mine and ended up having to take a wire clippers and cutting it out, ruining the jewelry.. it was scary! I didn't want to cut my face or anything.
