Product Description

Triops Hatchery

Triops are crustaceans that can be traced back to prehistoric times. Also known as 'living dinosaurs', Triops are brightly colored due to hemoglobin in the blood and pigment in their connective tissue. These cute three-eyed creatures grow up to 3 inches in length during  their 20-90 day life span, sometimes doubling in size in a single day! Very resourceful, they obtain oxygen from the water through their feet and sometimes swim on their backs, sweeping food into their mouths using their many gill feet. Triops Hatchery includes everything you need to hatch, grow, observe, experiment and document these ages-old creatures.

Hatch these fascinating triops, or "dinosaur shrimp," and watch them swim, eat, and grow to 1-3" long in just 30 days! These crustaceans  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.

This kit contains enough eggs to hatch 5 cycles. Just fill your hatchery with bottle spring water, tap in a few Triassic Triops eggs, and step into adventure learning about these ancient creatures.Contains 100 eggs.
