Ambystoma sp. Use the preserved larval tiger salamander not only to explore amphibian anatomy but also to advance your study of evolutionary biology. The prominent anatomical characteristics of larval tiger salamanders are much like that of Necturus sp., including external gills, gill slits, and a long caudal fin. However, while necturus remain aquatic throughout their entire lifespan and have 4 digits on their hindlimbs, tiger salamanders can undergo complete metamorphosis to transition to a terrestrial habitat and have 5 digits on their hindlimbs. And while complete metamorphosis is common among most tiger salamanders, scientists have found that under some environmental conditions, they may retain their larval characteristics and still reach sexual maturity, a phenomenon called neoteny. Tiger salamanders are widespread and commonly used in the fishing industry as bait.

Size, 6–8". Plain: No color injection. Multiple specimens are shipped together in a vacuum-sealed bag. Prices listed are for 1 specimen.

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.
