Product Description

Necturus is a genus of aquatic salamanders endemic to the eastern United States and Canada. They are commonly known as waterdogs and mudpuppies. The common mudpuppy (N. maculosus) is probably the best-known species; it is an amphibian with gill slits. It is often dissected in comparative anatomy classes. The liver is a long structure that occupies a large portion of the mid-ventral region of the abdominal cavity. The sides of the liver are somewhat lobulated.
