The Frog Battery
Science brain teasers require understanding of the physical or biological world and the laws that govern it.
A scientist was dissecting a frog and made electricity.
The acid in the frog mixed with the dissecting tools and conducted electricity.

|why would there be acid in a frog? you never mentioned that the frog was pickled in any type of acidic fluid!|

|sounds kind of like one of my sisters jokes. "Why did the rooster cross the road? To listen to some music." Doesn't make much sense!|

|to whomever thinks this teaser should be removed for the following reason: "This is another teaser that needs to be removed. When dissecting a frog, they have framaldathed (sic) in it which makes it so that all liquids in the body would be gone. No blood or any other liquid would be present. Even if this was a dead frog from his backyard this could not be possible. Gastric acid wouldn't be able conduct electricity in a noticable amount or any with the tools" you have obviously never been in an advanced bio or animal physiology class. we dissected many live animals, ranging from frogs to turtles to rats. and it's "formaldehyde", not "framaldathed"|
