DESCRIPTION

NOTE: Dogfish shark specimens are globally in short supply, and we are not sure when we will have more consistently available -- likely not until early 2018 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.
