Eleven different specimens selected to meet the basic requirements in the biology laboratory. Includes 10 of each specimen.

Important Notice: The supply of dissectible starfish specimens is limited due to a decline in natural populations of starfish, which has been attributed to sea star wasting disease. This disease, thought to be caused by a virus, has decimated populations of starfish along the East and West Coasts of the US. Future availability is uncertain at this time, as population recovery of these keystone species is critical.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent selection, but some specimens inadequate On paper, this set did a great job meeting the needs of our freshman biology class. The selection and value were great; I was glad to get the savings on the bulk shipment, and everything was neatly and safely packaged. However, some of the smaller organisms were damaged, both in transit and before even being packaged. Our sponges were largely lacking spicules, and some were already broken into pieces. The majority of the hydra were missing tentacles (which weren't in the specimen jars at all, so these broke off sometime prior to shipping) and some were rather beaten as well. Since we ordered two sets (20) for a need of 15, we were able to whittle down to the best organisms of what arrived, and still complete our labs. The larger specimens all look to be in good shape. In the interest of full disclosure, this was my first time using sponges and hydra for biology class, so perhaps the condition of these organisms is quite normal.
