Everything your class needs to witness sea urchins develop is available in this 1 convenient kit. You'll get Eucidaris tribuloides or Lytechinus variegates (our choice). Plus you receive all the materials and instructions necessary for achieving viable gametes—and for following development from early cleavage through pluteus. Urchins are ripe at the time of arrival; we recommend that they be used the day of arrival or immediately the next day to avoid reabsorption of the gametes. Not sexed, but male-to-female ratio is usually about 1:1.

Note: Please order at least 2 weeks in advance of the desired delivery date. Orders are shipped directly from our vendor located on the Florida coast. Orders are shipped on Mondays and Tuesdays for overnight delivery. Live delivery is not guaranteed for marine specimens shipped out of the United States.
