This large-sized fetal pig preserved specimen has vessels that are double injected with red and blue latex. Fetal pigs are commonly used to study mammal anatomy. The genus and species is Sus domesticus. Pig colors vary between pink and black.
A fetal pig dissection is helpful for anatomy studies because the size of the organs make them easy to find and identify. It is also interesting to do because a lot of the internal anatomy is similar to a human's. An inexpensive basic dissection guide is available, as well as more detailed ones.
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.
