Herpetological collection

From: Roberta Salmaso <rsalmaso>
Date: Monday, January 18, 1999
In our museum there is an old Herpetological collection (1850-1900)
preserved in formalin. For health safety we would like to substitute
formalin with 70% alcohol. Anyone knows if this change could damage
the specimens? In a few jars formalin is completely gone and the
specimen seems to be dessicated: what is the best way to re-hydrate
it? Thank you for your kind cooperation,
