    Shark dissection suggested in Apologia Young Explorers Series

  • I ordered this dissection kit for my son to finish the Apologia Young Explorers Creatures of the Fifth Day. We received our shark in good time. The bag was pierced so some of the fluid had leaked out, but it didn't seem to hurt the specimen. My son and I followed the guide and really enjoyed the information given on the dissection. We had a bit of trouble finding the ovaries,but we figured it out soon enough because of the illustrated guide. This is our second dissection kit from Home Science Tools and we plan to do more in the future.
    Complete Kit, recommended!

  • We ordered the shark dissection kit to end a unit study on sharks in our homeschool classroom. The specimen was in perfect condition, the foam dissection board fit the specimen perfectly and the dissection kit tools worked well for the dissection. The guide was different than the other specimen guides we have used from HST but was helpful. The quality was top notch as we have come to expect from HST specimens and would purchase again.

      Shark Dissection Kit

      Dissecting a shark is one of the best hands-on ways to learn about marine anatomy. This affordable dogfish shark dissection kit has everything you need, including a preserved, double-injected 18"-22" double injected dogfish shark, dissection guide, #22 scalpel, dissecting scissors, teasing needle, dissection pins, forceps and a dissecting tray.

      The vessels in this shark dissection specimen are double injected with red (arteries) and yellow (hepatic) latex. The dogfish shark species is Squalus acanthus.

      Please note: The tail of shark specimens is partially cut through and folded over to facilitate injection and shipping.

      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.
