10+ pricing is based on bulk-packed specimens. When necessary, you will receive a combination of 10-packs and individually packed specimens to fill your order.
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.
Please Note: When ordering this product, you may receive our upgraded Single-Injected Frog Specimen at no additional cost to you! The arteries in this upgraded specimen are injected with red latex to make it easier to trace the vascular system.
