    What People Are Saying

    Great bargain set
  • Audrey

  • The price for this set is really good. The only complaint I have is that I wish each piece was individually wrapped to make storing and saving easier. Other than that, it is a good set.
    Improved size this year

  • I order this set every year. Even though they were on the small side last year, the quality and price are the best around. My recent order was great, all were excellent in size and quality. I definitely recommend this product.
    Several had extras

  • Very pleased with the timeliness and quality of this set. Fish were small but everything else was great, in one set there was a male and female frog, and in another there was a male and female crayfish.

      Animal set, 7 specimens

      This set of seven medium-sized preserved specimens is an economical way to learn about and compare the anatomy of several animals. The 7 specimens include grass frog (3"+), earthworm (6-8"), Lubber grasshopper, crayfish (3-4"), clam (3-4"), perch (5-7") and starfish (3-5"). None of these specimens are injected. Packaged together in one bag.

      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.

      HST Specimen Guarantee

      In sealed, original packaging, our preserved specimens are guaranteed to remain fully preserved and free of decay for six months from the date of purchase.

      Once the original package is opened, use specimen within one month. For best results, observe the following storage procedures:

      • Store specimen in heavy-duty, zip-lock bags to minimize drying between dissections.
      • Specimen will slowly dry out or become contaminated in zip-lock bags; add a teaspoon of Specimen Holding Fluid to retain moisture.
      • Freezing or refrigeration is not necessary and may damage fragile tissues.

      Crayfish specimen will include at least one cheliped to dissect; although, in some cases, it may be detached from the body.

      Shipping Note: This item contains preserved specimens and only ships to a street address in the 50 US states.
