Because pig specimens are larger than frogs, they are ideal for students working in pairs or small groups, and their internal structures are typically easy for students to locate and identify. Students can:

  • Learn vertebrate anatomy and practice dissection skills at the same time
  • Examine organ systems and understand the relationship between structure and function
  • Investigate similarities and differences between pigs and other mammals, including humans

Our standard formalin pigs, shipped in Carosafe®. Prices listed are for 1 specimen. Choose your preference of packaging: available in pails or in damp-packed, vacuum-sealed bags (your choice of either 1 per bag or bulk bag). Free plastic bags included with all vacuum-packed pigs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well preserved specimens I have ordered these preserved fetal pigs twice in the past and they typically are in excellent condition. The last order contained one that had started to disintegrate and made it difficult to observe the organs well. Since all other pigs within that order were fine, I'm assuming this was an anomaly. The individual packaging is an excellent option for preventing excessive mess in the lab.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I have ordered from other companies and Carolina has the BEST fetal pigs for A&P dissections. They are large and in great condition. I prefer the pigs in separate vacuum sealed bags because there is less mess. I also had my order within 2 weeks which is fast compared to other companies.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inferior to the competition This rather skinny pig came with his neck slightly sliced and an unacceptable amount of floating feces around it. Compared to other experiences, this proved much inferior.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor specimens These pigs were very poorly preserved. When attempting to cut into them, it was like cutting into jello…no resistance and very little ability to cut into layers. These are the worst specimens that I have ever gotten from Carolina Biological.
