SHARK IN A JAR - SQUALUS ACANTHIAS
The spiny dogfish shark, Squalus acanthias, is found in temperate waters worldwide and is one of the best-known sharks in the world. Males grow to just over 3 feet on average, reaching maturity at around 11 years, while females may grow over 5 feet long and reach maturity after around 20 years. This is a viviparous species of shark, i.e. one that gives birth to live young, and it is regularly fished for food, fish oil, fertilizer, pet food, and scientific study.
These baby sharks are not fished for this purpose; they are by-products of commercial fishing. At times, female sharks are caught with developing young inside of them; these are collected and preserved. The Shark in a Jar is one of our most popular items with kids! Preserved in a mixture of 70% isopropyl alcohol and distilled water dyed blue for a captivating “oceanic” aesthetic, it makes a nifty piece of educational decor. Grab one today!

It's for my grandson who loves anything to do with sharks
Bought for 7yo grandson who is mesmerized by all sharks. Shark in a Bottle arrived quickly and packing was secure. The solution is very dark so shark is a bit hard to see details but he loves it!
Bought this for a friend who truly appreciates the originality of the gift.
Greatly wrapped packed shipped thanks team evolution!!!
Wrapped great no damage! Thanks team evolution! Prob whole jar 12inches
very clean, cute, perfect size, arrived very quickly
The specimen came really quickly! It also looks to be in really good condition, the only problem I had was in packaging, the tip of the tail pokes out of the lid which causes some of the liquid to leak out if it’s turned a specific way. 4/5
This is an awesome and very cool collectible and I am very happy that I purchased it. My "Shark in a Jar" arrived quicky and was well packed as well. I will definitely be buying more unique items from Evolution Store
I bought this for my 8-year-old brother and it is absolutely amazing!! He loves it and It looks super cool!
