Fluid Collection (Colchester)
Often specimens have to be preserved in fluid in order that we might study them later. This collection includes a number of items stored in fluids.
We hold a collection of specimens preserved in fluid. These include a range of vertebrates, including 200 reptiles and amphibians and a reference collection of 2,500 spiders, worms and other invertebrates.
We also hold a variety of fluid specimens from the Passmore Edwards museum.
