Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product The squid were great. I ordered them in bags instead of buckets, which worked out great since there was less carosafe to dispose of. The squid were in good shape, and arrived on time. I was extra pleased that there was one female in the bunch. That is the first female we have received for years, and it was great for the students to see both sexes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Squid were a hit! We dissected squid with our fifth graders and their grandparents for a special event. They were a hit! The kids loved them, especially removing the pin and writing with the ink from the ink sack. The squid arrived promptly and were in great condition. We will definitely be ordering this product again. Thanks, Carolina, for continuing to offer such a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Preserved squid are excellent for engaging and inspiring future biologists. I have ordered preserved squid from Carolina Biological for several years. The specimens are excellent for dissecting and learning anatomy. They are in great shape and are overall good quality. The students love this hands-on exploration and first dissection experience. It is easy to order through this company and the squid arrived less than 24 hours after ordering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great preservation quality I had some squids leftover from another company to use up in one class and used Carolina's squids in the other class. The difference was huge! Carolina's squids weren't mushy and the students could easily distinguish the different structures. The other company's squids had internal organs that were indistinguishable and were so soft that everything mushed together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size for dissection Was worried to begin with as these were the smaller size, but they were the perfect size for our classroom dissection. Fit nicely in the dissection tray and were easy for students to maneuver.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice specimens, mostly males The specimens were all in good to great shape, which made the dissections easy. However, of around 40 individuals used from our order there was only one female. My students will know very well what a male squid looks like, but comparing the sexes was not possible.
