Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dogfish Shark Students enjoyed dissecting very much!!! But, next time I will get the injected ones. The anatomy will be much easier to see and it will enhance the learning experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4th graders enthralled with dogfish sharks! Our 4th graders were enthralled with the dogfish sharks. We learned so much from this experience. The sharks arrived in great shape. We did find that most of ours didn't seem to have their gall bladders though. We had a nice mix of male and female specimens too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great specimen Students love this dissection. The sharks are good size and females are like a wrapped gift- pregnant or not?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not the same old dogfish I have been buying and dissecting SPINY dogfish from Carolina for close to 20 years and in the past two, the sharks sent to me are NOT spiny dogfish, I'm not sure what they are exactly, but out of the 14 I ordered this year, only 1 was a SPINY dogfish. There are significant differences: teeth, gills, organ placement, just to name a few, that make it INCREASINGLY harder to follow the guides and diagrams. These replacement sharks are much harder to cut and have more dangerous teeth than the spiny dogfish. Please bring the old guys back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good quality These were fine, but they were all male. One would hope that Carolina automatically determine males and females them and send some of each OR give us the option to select the male or female and how many of each when we order them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for high school dissection I had my honors students dissect the shark. They loved it. It is a complex dissection and I believe doing a dissection you should thoroughly examine and make connections with all of the organs. I felt my CP classes would not have gotten much out of the shark dissection because it would have been too overwhelming. My honors students spent 2 full days dissecting alone. Organs looked great
