Dogfish shark, 18-22", double injected
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.
Note: This item only ships to the 50 US states with Economy, Ground or Express shipping options.

Deep down, I think we all want to dissect a shark. The size was pretty good, although the specimen was a little bit too dry. Overall, it's worth buying.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with these sharks. The size of the specimens were perfect for the size of class we have. We purchased 4 for our 10 students to share. The dying helped us identify parts much easier. A wonderful experience!
