Examples of Analogous Structures?

Answer

In biology, analogous structures is a term that is used to describe parts of the anatomy that have similar uses in different species but are not the same thing. Examples of analogous structures would include arms in humans and front legs on a dog. A dog will use his front legs to hold things as we do our arms, but they look different. Other examples of analogous structures are the similarities between a fly's wings and a butterfly's wings. They both allow the insect to fly, but don't look exactly the same.
