Rat Disection for Anatomy and Physiology

So I meant to post this like a week and a half ago, but I procrastinate :P Well about a week and a half ago I had to disect a rat for my anatomy and physiology class.  In high school I was never good with disection, but I decided I have to do it to get through these classes so I'm just going to have to suck it up.  My lab partner is this little asian lady, I believe she is from the Philippines or something, but I'm not sure.  She doesn't speak english very well but I really have to respect her for coming to this country, learning english the best she can, working and going to school to make a life for herself.  She is really a sweet lady.  Well we had our rat, I named him Max, and I was doing some of the initial cutting, then I asked her if she would like to do some.  Instead of using the scissors or the scalpel thing she just starts peeling the rat like an orange!! lol We both laughed about it as she continued to tear the rats skin off.  Surprisingly, disecting the rat wasn't really that hard.  Other people had really fat rats, and one group had a pregnant one with little babies inside, they were sooo cute!!! Anyways, thats my disecting story.
