This giant of the temporary pond dates back to the time when the earth trembled under the mighty steps of Tyrannosaurus Rex! Triops are basically a form of shrimp---and they look very similar to their ancestors of long ago. So similar, in fact, that some consider these little creatures to be the oldest living animal species on the earth! They’re small enough so they will fit in a fish tank—but don’t let their size fool you. How does it work? Easy. Triops come to you in a state of suspended animation. These nearly hatched eggs remain like this for years—or until you decide to bring them back to life by adding spring or bottled drinking water. They will hatch within 24 hours and quickly grow up to two inches long. Feed them twice daily and your Triops will live 20-70 days—unless, of course, they are eaten alive by their cannibalistic siblings. This set of eggs includes complete instructions on how to take care of them properly, as well as food. Watch their amazing aqua-batics once they grow. Great gift for anyone who has a passion for unique and unusual pets!
