Yes, I recommend
We received our shipment today and I am very happy with the quality of the planaria and the speed of delivery. All of our specimens arrived alive and were very well packaged. I can’t get an accurate count, but we got about 60-70 planaria. These are for my daughter’s science fair project, and she is thrilled to have gotten such a healthy and abundant supply. I will recommend this to my teacher friends as well as other parents whose kids have a love of science. My experience with Boreal Science has been excellent. Thanks so much!
