DESCRIPTION

Mink are much more economical than other large mammal carnivore specimens like the cat. This preserved mink dissection specimen is skinned and typically 14"-17" in length for the males and 10"-14" in length for the smaller females. This is a farm raised specimen with well-developed muscle structure and the scent glands removed. It is a double injected specimen with red latex injected into the arteries and blue latex injected into the veins to more easily trace the vascular system. Mink species is typically Neovison vison.

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.
