The animal specimens are initially preserved in the best preservative possible: formaldehyde. Problem is, as you would know if you've done dissections before, formaldehyde is an obnoxious-smelling, toxic liquid. That's why we displaced the formaldehyde with water, then displaced the water with a glycol solution. You enjoy a very decay-resistant specimen, but without any toxic fumes or messy liquids! (Use specimens within a year of purchase for best quality.) Cannot be shipped directly to some foreign countries.
