2018 - Netherlands - non-CITES species

Specimen: Diaphonized Musk Turtles
Object: encased in sphere on custom stand
Scientific Name: Sternotherus odoratus
Origin: Netherlands
CITES relevancy: non-CITES species
Condition: Preserved
Year: 2018
Dimensions: 11×0×0 cm

Very unique and special.

2 diaphonized preparations of baby Musk turtles

2 colours.

Very useful for educational purposes.

This is a genuine turtle.

The process of diaphonizing animals is a lengthy and expensive project which takes a long time, by putting certain chemicals together you get the result that the meat starts becomes transparent and the bones discolour, making it very clear how the bones are connected to each other and what the inside of the animal looks like, even the cartilage is visible!

    Bien reçu. Déçu car la sphère est toute petite. Je pensais qu'elle faisait 11 cm de diamètre mais c'est la sphère (3 cm de diamètre) et le support qui font cette taille.
