Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful tool for beginner dissectors! I have purchased lubber grasshoppers from Carolina in the past and continue to be impressed with the quality. I think the 100 count is a great deal! Lubber grasshoppers are a great specimen for beginning dissectors. My students dissect them with great ease and much inquiry. Thanks so much!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lubbers used to be better! The preserved lubbers are relatively inexpensive for a bucket of 100, but they used to be better 5-6 years ago, when they were tan/yellowish in color (likely adult stage). The last few years, the shipments have been of black specimens, which are much more difficult to use to see structures in morphology labs. Also, the internal organs of these specimens may be of poorer quality, depending on the shipment. Finally, the pail I opened last month had 97 males and only a couple of females. Disappointing!

Carolina's Perfect Solution Specimens

Carolina's Perfect Solution®—Safe. Convenient. Superior.

Our commitment to producing the finest preserved specimens on the market has led us to Carolina's Perfect Solution®, a unique, revolutionary fixative that is dramatically improving the quality of classroom dissection.

  • No formalin odor
  • No dangerous off-gassing
  • No dark and unnatural appearance

Instead, organisms preserved with Carolina's Perfect Solution® retain more lifelike color and texture. Because students study more natural-looking specimens, it is easier for them to identify the structures and, as a result, learn anatomy.

Carolina's Perfect Solution® specimens are safe and nontoxic, which means you need no special ventilation and there's no costly disposal.
