More Information

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.

Very Unique Dissection Review by
This is a large dissection specimen, (well worth the money), and good for students to do. The smell is stronger when it's first opened, so good ventilation or opening it outside helps with this. But after the smell was not bad at all and the dissection itself is so interesting and unique for students of all ages to do.
Pleased with the shark Review by
I needed this shark quickly for one of my son's classes, so I was delighted that I could get it overnighted. The shark arrived in great condition and it was pre-cut. We did not dissect this shark, however, so I can't comment on the condition of the internal organs.
Nice, some bad qualities Review by
I haven't dissected this yet, but let me tell you that you could have guessed what was in the box from a mile away!
It smelled terrible. Also, the latex injections appeared to be leaking from its head. It seems fine other than that, and I think this will be a fun thing to dissect.
Great specimen but missing organs Review by
This is a GREAT specimen. It was easy to do and very well preserved. I only buy my specimens here because I have yet to find any that were unusable. The customer service here is impeccable, too! My issue is that the shark came with its gender organs removed! I am thinking from examining it that it was female, but there was no gender organs inside the shark and you could tell where the organs would've been attached. (There was a tube right where the uterus should've been with nothing attached to it.) I wish I had known from reading the description. It was disappointing to not be able to verify what the children thought it was, which was part of their assignment.
[HST says: Someone from customer service will contact you. The dogfish shark specimens should come fully intact, and we have a theory as to what may have occurred with yours. Thanks for the great feedback!]
