Specimen Preparation

If your specimens are dead, then place them in a suitable crush-proof container and send them along with your completed Specimen Evaluation Form

Live creatures, however, may wander away while you’re trying to capture their portraits. To stop them from escaping, put them into a small bag, jar or other container, then place this into your freezer for about an hour. This will kill almost any kind of creature.
