Product Description
This lapel pin is inspired by the african clawed frog, Xenopus laevis. Not just any frog, Xenopus is an important model organism for scientists. As a model organism, it is closely related to humans and other vertebrates and was even on board the space shuttle Endeavour to study reproduction in zero gravity. It is used extensively in developmental biology, cell biology, toxicology and neurobiology primarily because of its large, easy to work with embryo. In nature, it is an aggressive and robust predator and can easily invade new habitats and outcompete native frog species.

Lapel pin ships from Shapeways without the butterfly clasp to attach the pin. You will need to purchase one yourself, or borrow one from another pin you might have lying around the house.
