Hardy planaria! I have used these for regeneration with Biology classes, and the students love them! We had excellent regeneration results. I fed the planaria cooked egg yolks, and they did very well. The care guidelines are helpful. November 19, 2014
Worked out great! Received when promised, came with instructions and pipettes and, most importantly, all live Planaria! It wasn't clear that the purchase came with instructions and pipettes other than another commenter suggested such so we were not sure until the package arrived. We learned quickly not to leave them in bright light. Worked out to be great science fair projects. November 11, 2014
Excellent regeneration results I use these planaria for a regeneration lab in my 7th grade life science class. We make only one transverse cut to create a head and a tail. Survival rate is excellent. (In the past, I tried multiple cuts per specimen with little success.) Most specimens fully regenerate in 3 weeks. March 12, 2014
Students love this! These planaria are great for teaching regeneration and my students love it! Just a few tips that I learned: keep them in a fairly warm place (one year they got too cold and died); feed them a little piece of egg yolk once per week, but make sure to clean their water after letting them feed for about 30 minutes; only cut them into two pieces and don't cut through the head region; observe them under dissecting scope; make sure to use pond/spring water as tap water will kill them! Otherwise, these regenerate fairly quickly and are fun to watch! February 6, 2014
