The specimens I received were not at all what they were made out ot be on this website. The perch was smaller than the crayfish and the frog was smaller than the crayfish. And the insides of the crayfish were yellow crumbles. Also the perch looked as though it had expired, being a nasty orange-yellow color inside. The worm was the only satisfactory specimen I received
This year was my third experience with biology using a dissection kit and this was a very sub par collection of specimens. The critters were so dried out it was next to impossible to work with them or make identifications. We had purchased previously from a strictly science vendor through CBD and had no problem.
It is wonderful to have a place to purchase these kits at a reasonable price. However, it would be nice if they were individually packaged because they do not do four dissections in one day. I noticed some students had individually bagged specimens, but we did not. Also, some had trays, we did not. Even so, it's a great buy.
My 9 year old grandaughter is thrilled with this product. She is extremely interested in science especially biology. All she wanted for her birthday was a frog to dissect. The added specimens were perfect for her.
This was perfect for our biology class. I however, assumed the tray was part of it, which was seen in photo. It is not. It is exactly as described, four animals in plastic. This is very affordable however and worth it. I will be getting this again for my next biology class.
