Abstract: Histomorphological structures of the femur and the second phalange of the second outer toe of the left frog leg were investigated using the decalcifying method in Rana bedriagae. Skeleton Growth Marks (SGMs) were clearly observed in Rana bedriagae and it was shown that the skeletochronological technique is convenient and applicable for the age determination of this species.
Keywords: Bone, Skeletochronology, Age determination, Rana bedriagae.
