Hatch these fascinating triops, or "dinosaur shrimp," and watch them swim, eat, and grow to 1-3" long in just 30 days! These crustaceans are advertised as "Triassic Triops" and have eggs that can stay dormant for 25 years, until conditions are right for hatching. Put them in water, and they will hatch within 24 hours and begin to grow rapidly. Triops are entertaining to watch as they swim, use tiny legs on their bellies to carry food to their mouths, and breathe through gills in their feet.
This complete kit includes a tank with a lid, thermometer, egg packet, food, and illustrated booklet full of triops information and care instructions.
Science Fair Project Ideas:
- Is there a way to speed up how fast the Triops grow? Try putting in more or less water, or moving them in or out of sunlight.
- See how quickly your Triops change by examining them with a magnifying glass or taking a digital photo every few hours.
