With this Triassic Triops kit, prehistoric creatures spring back to life by simply adding water. Each kit comes complete with everything you need to grow these amazing pets. Provided with spring water and light, the triops will quickly grow to adult size of two or more inches in less than 30 days. The Triassic Triops kit contains a container of eggs, hatching 5 to 20 creatures. Each nearly doubles in size daily for the 1st 5 days, swims upside down, performs acrobatics, and teaches simple science concepts.
Kit includes: a kidney-shaped tank 2-3/8" tall x 8-1/2"x 5-3/4", a very informative instruction booklet, and a packet full of triops eggs and food. Add the eggs to water and watch them go; they'll hatch in a day and reach 1" to 2" or more in a few weeks. Really easy to do, and really cool too. Recommended for ages 8 and up.
