Product Details
Loligo pealeii or Illex illecebrosus. Use preserved squid to explore the fascinating anatomical characteristics of cephalopods. Student engagement will soar as they examine the squid's external anatomy, which features arms and tentacles with small sucker cups, complex eyes, color-changing chromatophores, and more. Internally, more interesting structures can be observed such as a beak, 3 hearts, and a modified shell called a gladius or "pen." As students dissect and explore the anatomy of this complex, intelligent invertebrate, have them relate structure to function and note structural adaptations.

Preserved squid are appropriate for elementary school general science classes up into college-level comparative anatomy courses.
