Sheep and pig brains, although smaller than human brains, have similar features. Due to their similarities, they are perfect for anatomy and brain structure studies!
Use a scalpel to dissect, and see for yourself what the cerebrum, cerebellum, spinal cord, corpus callosum, pituitary gland, pineal gland, longitudinal fissure, sulci, gyri, olfactory bulbs, brain stem, optic nerves, temporal lobe, frontal lobe, parietal lobe, occipital lobe, rhinencephalon lobe, optic chiasma, and other major structures and parts of the brain look like.
This plain preserved mammal brain specimen comes with the cranial nerve attached.

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.
Note: Specimens may show natural spots of discoloration or experience slight scoring during the cutting process.
HST Specimen Guarantee
In sealed, original packaging, our preserved specimens are guaranteed to remain fully preserved and free of decay for 12 months from the date of purchase.
