Triops Deluxe Kit
Desktop Monsters Older than Dinosaurs
From tiny eggs resting in suspended animation, grow three-eyed creatures that time forgot! Triops were around when dinosaurs walked the Earth, and now they can swim on your desk.
It's true. Triops have been around for a bajillion years. They have survived unchanged due to a very special adaptation called “diapause.” When their ponds dried up, the Triops' eggs went into a state of suspended animation until the ponds filled again.
Triops look like a cross between a horseshoe crab and a facehugger (look out Sigourney!), and can grow to be up to 2” long. Oh yeah, and THEY HAVE 3 EYES!! You'll have a very unique conversation starter on your desk. And since Triops hatch in about 24 hours and almost double in size daily, expect your desk to be the center of the office as your co-workers stop by frequently to see how the Triops are doing. Go crazy, name the Triops after your co-workers. We did! And don't worry - these Triops are grown on special farms; you're not harming any ecosystems by growing an army of desk aliens.
