  • As usual with Home Science Tools, this was another great dissecting specimen. Very interesting and different than just the normal standard specimens we dissect every year. I saved this one as a special treat for my science club to dissect.
    My son is thrilled

      Squid, 8-12", plain specimen

      Do a squid dissection to learn about its respiratory, circulatory, excretory, reproductive, digestive, nervous, skeletal, and muscular systems. This plain preserved squid specimen is typically genus Loligo.

      10+ pricing is based on bulk-packed specimens. When necessary, you will receive a combination of 10-packs and individually packed specimens to fill your order.

      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.
