Black Planaria are a flatworm commonly used in science fair projects. They do not bite and move very slowly, making them easy for young students to observe.

This species is similar to Brown Planaria but can grow slightly larger and has a ruffled plicate pharynx.

Black planaria are up to 1/2" in size.

The planaria arrived in good health on the date that was requested. Great to use with our discussion about types of Asexual Reproduction in Grade 9 science!

I'm very happy with these planaria. They arrived really healthy and so far, they're still alive after being housed for three months in our lab's aquarium. The students loved them!
