Sheep brains are the perfect specimens to study mammalian brain structure. A sheep brain is similar to a human brain and the structures are easily identified. Standard formalin sheep brains are shipped in Carosafe®, Carolina's proprietary shipping and holding fluid. Carosafe® is an odorless fluid designed to minimize the unpleasant odor of formaldehyde. Choose your packaging preference: pail, 1 per bag, or bulk bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product. We've been using these sheep brains for years. These have worked well and showed the anatomical features the students need to see at a decent price. The only downside is an occasional mangled brain which looks to be because of the vacuum bagging process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Teaching Tool I bought this for my homeschool programs with students ranging from Kindergarten through 8th grade. Every single student thought it was great to be able to see and hold a real brain while talking about how the brain works. They are small but overall a great teaching tool. I am so glad that I purchased them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Recent batch badly damaged This batch was 0/25 for olfactory bulbs, several brains were fixed in a bent position, and the medullas, cerebella and cranial nerves were damaged or missing parts. Several brains were poorly fixed and mushed when cut, so had to use more than one per group of students. I prefer brains with dura mater as they are more intact, but the price rise is prohibitive. I'm not sure why, since removing the dura is more work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice specimen, and the humectant is low-odor Pros: the humectant smells so much better than formalin. This is critical with our students, many of whom have sensory issues. Cons: no pineal gland, small specimen

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good...could be better These are good specimens, however I'd love the option to have the brains with Dura Mater in tact preserved in Perfect Solution, instead of the formaldehyde-preserved ones. I like to teach students about the meninges, so I need the ones with the dura...but I'd rather not have the smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the way to order the brain These brains have the dura mater intact. Part of the cranial floor is attached to preserve the cranial nerves and pituitary gland. I thought the students got more out of this dissection than previous ones that had the dura removed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent specimens These were well preserved and such an affordable way for students to learn about the structure of the brain. The tissue was in good condition and the students were easily able to locate all the main parts of the brain with ease. I will definitely be ordering these next year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast shipping The brains arrived just as they were stated so it ensured the professor's success in the classroom.
