Oh, Fetal Pig...you truly are the unsung hero of the biology classroom. Generations of students wrinkle their noses at the very mention of you, but they will never forget what you taught them about fetal circulation and the beautiful complexity of biological bodies.

I hope that this knitted homage will put a fond smile on the faces of busy biologists, everywhere.

This little piggy is hand knitted by me in hand dyed merino/silk blend yarn. His organs are needle felted and sewn in place. He comes pinned into a 7 1/2" x 11 1/4" dissection tray, lined with black wax.

    I bought this item after seeing it trend on Reddit's r/all. I freaking love it. It says in the description that the knitted lab rat may not look like the one pictured, but the one I received looks identical, if not, better. After taking a closer look, the details are pretty cool. It definitely looks like it took a while to put together.

    I know that this requires a unique taste, and even Emily said herself this is not for everyone. When I received it, I thought perhaps my friends would think it was too out there. But they absolutely loved it as well. It's pretty amazing.
