Description: 

Two healthy adult S. officinalis undergoing skin graft experiments. Both animals are alive but anesthetized for the surgical procedure. In these experiments, 1cm diameter sections of skin were transferred between animals to demonstrate that this species has no cell-mediated immune response. Skin grafts were readily accepted between animals, see image 1190.
