They knew nothing about structural features and most of the qualities of a living organism. They had to do it. Their main reason was a thirst of knowledge. Nowadays, science generally has information about most of the living organisms. They know characteristics and predisposition to environment or both, external and internal factors that have an effect to a separate living organism. I find it useless and in most cases meaningless.

That’s the thing I would never understand. Everyone knows that the frog or bird has a different physiology. It’s different from human’s. Also, there illustrations on books or there might be models. We can avoid killings. Vivisection - it's a shame of modern society, and I think that at least half a...
