Wet Specimens are a great way of preserving and keeping scientific samples of organic matter. They prevent the specimen from decaying, allowing it to be studied at a later date. Scientist have used this method of preservation for years, storing anything from human organs to malformations animals.

The process of diaphanization has also been known as "clearing and staining." The animals are rendered transparent (the "clearing") by bathing in a soup of trypsin, a digestive enzyme that slowly breaks down their flesh. They also soak in several batches of bone, muscle, or cartilage dyes (the "staining"), with alizarin red and alcian blue the most commonly used. The result is a visually striking display of anatomy

All of our wet specimens died naturally before being preserved. Many of our specimens come from vet techs with whom we work closely. Specimens such as kittens and puppies were stillborn, miscarried, or died shortly after birth. 

All orders ship same or next business day with exception to oversized items. Those items will be identified in the description (Items such as large taxidermy, skulls or exceedingly heavy minerals).

If the subtotal of your order is over $98 the shipping is free (the discount is applied automatically to the cart at checkout)

If there is an issue with your order or something arrives damaged, we will refund or replace the item.
