    What People Are Saying

    Snake, Garter

  • My scholars had an excellent experience with the snake. Odor was not a problem. The snake was large enough for a group of 5 scholars to dissect and identify the organs.

  • This is the second one of these that I purchased. I was huge the first time, but a lot smaller this time. I guess there is a lot of variation when buying these

  • This dissection was easily one of my favorites that we have purchased from HST and we have purchased close to 10! The snake is incredibly easy to dissect and comes very well preserved. It is extremely long and ours was a female that had eggs! There was little odor and was so much fun to dissect. I would recommend this dissection to anyone, whether you are a novice or an expert! I cannot say enough great things about HST's customer service! They are prompt in answering questions and addressing problems. Their customer service is one of the main reasons that I only get my science tools here!

      Snake, Garter or Water, plain specimen

      Learn about internal snake anatomy! This preserved snake specimen is usually from the Genus Thamnophis, although the species varies. 18-22" long. Not injected.

      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.

      Shipping Note: This item contains preserved specimens and only ships to a street address in the 50 US states.
