More Information

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.

Dogfish Shark Review by
This was an awesome dissection!!!!! If you are looking for a good, interesting dissection, this is the one!!
Cool Review by
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.
Great product Review by
Very thankful to be able to get quality specimens for our homeschool co-op. My students are getting an better quality education because of supplies such as Home Science Tools. Thank you!
Awesome Dissection! Review by
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!
shark dissection Review by
Overall the dissection was a great experience for our co-op. I was a little disappointed with the color injection. The shark cavity had globs of dye that had to be removed to see some of the organs. Would have been a better specimen without the dye.
Dogfish Shark Review by
The shark was much larger than I expected. It was a bit twisted, making dissection a slight challenge. We were excited to find a very large fish head in it's stomach. The kids loved this. It was the hit of the summer.
Ships to homes Review by
I run a homeschool co-op, and I was looking for animals for some dissection labs to accompany our research papers. The web site many of my acquaintances use charged more for their frogs and would not even ship sharks to a residential address. Home Science Tools wins my business for (a) availability, (b) great prices, (c) fast shipping, and (d) high quality products. The kids enjoyed the lab immensely, and we even found a partially digested shrimp in the stomach of one of our sharks!
we saw its last meal! Review by
These great specimen were easy for my students to work on, though a few of them were overwhelmed at one time or another and had to step away, sometimes due to the smell and sometimes due to the intensity of being in a creature's insides. Delivery was quick and complete!
Creation Live! Review by
The Dogfish Shark used in teaching creation. This hands on activity is not forgotten. I have used this for school age to high school with great results.
Great size for seeing details Review by
Just finished dissecting this shark in our biology class. I was pleasantly surprised at the details that could be seen and how easy it was to dissect. It is great start to moving on to the studying the human body and the individual organs.
Larger Than I Expected! Review by
I teach Marine Biology and Sharks classes often so I have to order sharks on a regular basis. The latest shipment was packed with extra large specimens. My students LOVED them. Thank you, Home Science Tools!
Great Sharks! Review by
Larger than expected, packed safely and shipped quickly. Second time I've purchased and will purchase again.
Great Shark Review by
It arrives and is much larger than expected. It is well packaged and the coloration is spot on, no excessive odor. This was great fun to work on for my son.
Excellent Catch! Review by
The shark was in excellent shape. There was not disscoloration. The organs were in perfect shape. No smell of lingering smell of formaldehyde compared to the specimen I dissected in high school. This will make a perfect science activity for my future classes.
Absolutely spectacular! Review by
The shark was spectacular! It was in great shape. We even found a whole, undigested fish in its stomach!!! Truly an awesome experience for all the students!
Great Sharks! Review by
Specimens are in great shape. My class was able to locate all the organs, and the dye was helpful as well.
