Dogfish shark, 18-22", double injected

Item# PM-DOGFISH

The vessels in this shark dissection specimen are double injected with red (arteries) and blue (veins) latex. The dogfish shark species is Squalus acanthus.

Please note that the tail of shark specimens is partially cut through and folded over to facilitate injection and shipping.

Note: Specimens are initially preserved with a formaldehyde solution, the best animal tissue fixative. The formaldehyde is then displaced first with water and finally with a glycol solution to produce a moist, low-fume specimen which will not decay over time. Plan to use specimens within one year of purchase to ensure the best tissue quality. Specimen discoloration and dryness over time is normal and does not indicate decay.

Store your specimens at normal room temperature—refrigeration is not required. Storage in attics or garages at high temperatures will damage the specimens. Once opened, specimens can be resealed in a zip-lock bag to prevent them from drying out for later use.

Injection was helpful. Specimen was dried out/ Review by
I was disappointed in the quality of the dogfish.
The specimen was very dessicated, even though it was preserved with formalin & sealed: making the dissection
experience not as beneficial as others we have done with better specimens. I have ordered from a competitor before (Carolina) and though it was more expensive, the specimen was in much better condition. Shipping was fast.
Great for homeschool dissection Review by
Perfect for dissection! It was nice that they already cut it and the kids didn't have to do a lot of work on it.
Very nice specimens wish we could have had both sexes to dissect Review by
I teach a co-op to older homeschooled kids. Two years ago, we dissected sharks. I was a little worried about the oil in the cavity and their size. Thankfully the oil was drained and we preformed the dissections on large tote lids which worked out fine. I would highly recommend this product. Only issue, small one really, was that of the 5-6 specimens we had they were all male. I have kids begging me to do the shark dissection again from the co-op, so they were not disappointed.
Disappointed, but corrected ( Review by
This was my second shark that I ordered. The first shark was perfect, but this second one came and had brown stuff all over it. I took it out of the bag, but I was not able to use this for our second class. We were very disappointed and this class had to be canceled. Home Science Tools did compensate by refunding me, which I gladly accepted and had them to just give me credit to order something. They are great to work with and did not give me any hassells. My four star rating is for the customer service I received which will keep me coming back for all of our science needs.
awesome Review by
This was an extra experiment I ordered for my students at the co-op. AWESOME! was their response
