DESCRIPTION

NOTE: Fetal pig specimens are in short supply, and we are unsure when we will have more consistently available—likely not until early 2018 or beyond. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Fetal pigs are commonly used to study mammal anatomy. This medium-sized preserved pig dissection specimen has vessels that are double injected with red and blue latex to make veins and arteries easy to identify. The genus and species is Sus domesticus.

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 humans. If you're interested in an anatomy overview, get our affordable Basic Fetal Pig Dissection Guide, which guides you through everything but the urogenital, circulatory, and nervous systems.

Note: Specimens are initially preserved with a formaldehyde solution, the best animal tissue fixative. The formaldehyde is then displaced first with water and then a glycol solution to produce a pliable, low-fume specimen that won't 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.
