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!

5 star rating  Triops
Silas Syms from USA, Oregon, Terrebonne
Was thrilled to find this and the shipping was ultra speedy! Thank you so much!!!

5 star rating  Active and fast growing.
Paul from Columbus, OH
My daughter loves checking on them every day because they are noticeably larger on a daily basis. We feed and watch them together. They are much more interesting than sea monkeys, easier to see, and quite active. Many more will match than will make it to adulthood.

Oliver from Plano TX
The Tiops survived for only about 4 -5 days after hatch. We have followed the instruction, it was supposed to suvrive much longer.
Review reply from xUmp.com:It is probably due to water quality. Triops are very sensitive. Use only high-quality bottled spring water like Crystal Geyser or Arrowhead.
4 star rating  Tadpole Shrimp
Nick from Indianapolis
These were delivered freakishly fast. I only got a few to hatch, but that's probably because I goofed something up.

5 star rating  WOW

I love triops so much. For my science fair project (which won the fair) was a hit and I was even in touch with a Triops scientist. MUST GET!!!!!!!!!

5 star rating  Triops Review
Jack from Usa
Good product, great price, lots of fun for everyone

1 star rating  Triops eggs
Claire Pearson from Connecticut
We followed the directions (almost) to a T. Used bottled water, added the shredded carrot...The only trouble we had was keeping the temp at a constant 74 degrees. Thus, the eggs failed to hatch and we had a disappointed 8 year old. Any suggestions for keeping them warm? I suppose we should wait until summer to try again...
Review reply from xUmp.com:A heat lamp or a light above could help with the temperature.

Triops are amazing creatures because they have been alive for over 70 million years. Triops can be great gifts for children who have a passion for unique and unusual pets.
