    What People Are Saying

    Shark
  • Angel

  • We have ordered many dissection specimens from HST and have been very pleased with them all. This one was not as impressive as others though. The shark was folded, so the back end was snapped and barely hanging on. It was small and shrunken and a little harder to get in to, but we were able to accomplish our learning needs. Still good quality, just not superb as our other HST specimens have been.
    Great Co-op Specimen

  • This was the coolest dissection this year! We ordered 1 fish per every 2 students for our co-op biology class and the work-load was perfectly divided for a specimen of this size. In the dissection, we removed each organ for a comparative organ lab from multiple specimens at a later date, within the intestines of one of the sharks was a perfectly preserved fish!!! The kids ( and me) loved it!!
    Nice size

  • I purchased 4 dogfish sharks for a comparative fish anatomy lab. The specimens were huge and in great shape. I would recommend a resealable bag.

      Dogfish shark, 18-22", double injected

      NOTE: Dogfish shark specimens are globally in short supply, and we are not sure when we will have more consistently available -- likely not until Summer 2017 or beyond. Those few that we do receive in the mean time will be used to fill orders for the Shark Dissection Kit. We apologize for the inconvenience.

      The vessels in this shark dissection specimen are double injected with red (arteries) and yellow (hepatic) latex. The dogfish shark species is Squalus acanthias.

      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.

      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.

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