Get everything you need for dissecting a grasshopper!
This grasshopper dissection kit comes with a preserved grasshopper specimen, plus all the dissection tools you need to explore this arthropod: a full-color photographic grasshopper dissection guide, scissors, plastic forceps, and a styrofoam dissecting pan.
Elementary, middle school, and high school students can use this grasshopper dissection kit to closely investigate and learn about the internal and external anatomy of grasshopper. As they explore grasshopper anatomy, students will learn to identify body parts such as pairs of wings, appendages/pairs of legs, the thorax, the exoskeleton, the mandibles, the antennae, the simple eyes and compound eyes, the maxillae, the ovipositors, and more!

Home Science Tools recommends using disposable gloves for all dissections.
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.
