This mammal uterus dissection specimen contains an embryo that is typically 2"-6" in length. This is a plain preserved specimen.
This specimen will typically be from sheep; however, pig or goat may be substituted due to availability.
Dissecting this preserved pregnant sheep uterus allows for the study of animal science and the ovine uterus, embryo, placenta, and umbilical attachment of a large mammal in early pregnancy. Examine and/or learn about ovine body parts and complexities such as the uterine horn, uterine wall, conceptus structures, trophoblast, myometrium, endometrial glands, placentation and placentomes, progestin, uterine epithelia, epithelial cells, blood vessels, blood flow, oviducts, stroma, endometrial epithelia, parturition (birth), and more!
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.
