We are all familiar with the the distinctive shape of the human brain, that wondrous organ, the most complex of all that can be found in our bodies. In fact, the standard image of the brain as seen in media, advertising, and pop culture, is so ubiquitous that it's easy to forget that brains come in a stunning diversity of shapes, sizes, and capacities. This set of classroom-quality comparative brain specimens helps to demonstrate nature's incredible variety while still showing that regardless of the size or species of animals, each brain shares a similar general structure with fascinating variations in the details.
As students pass this sturdy clear acrylic block around the classroom, they'll be able to observe 5 different animal brains, and make note of differences and similarities between their structures. The block features a carp, frog, snake, pigeon, and rabbit, and each of these species thus serves as a representative for a different class of animal (fish, amphibian, reptile, bird, and mammal, respectively). The block can also be closely examined under microscope or magnifying glass to get a closer look. Excellent for collectors, or for use in the biology or anatomy classroom. Includes a numbered key to help identify specimens, and comes in a sturdy blue display box.
Note: Actual size of block is 6.4in x 3in x 1in
