Hatch and care for your own prehistoric pets. Aqua Dragons kits contain live eggs that hatch into live aquatic creatures. These critters are a species of brine shrimp that were alive when Dinosaurs populated the earth! Just add water and they amazingly hatch in just 2-3 days and grow up to 2cm long. Their scientific name is Artemia Salinas, and they have been living in the sea and salty lakes for millions of years, even during the prehistoric era. The tiny crustaceans resemble tiny dragons with their long tail and spiky external shell. Their eggs have an amazing capacity called cryptobiosis which allows them dry out and stay alive only to hatch thousands of years later. It has been discovered that eggs kept in air sealed containers for up to 20 years still hatched when they were returned to water.
Just add water and they amazingly hatch within just 2-3 days. Within 5-7 days you should be able to see them. Your child will be provided with an ownership certificate and the opportunity to learn about the life cycle and anatomy of the creatures while you watch them hatch, grow through the naupuli stage to adults, eat, play and reproduce. They make the perfect first pet as they are easy to care for and low maintenance.
The deluxe Underwater World kit contains everything you need including the aquarium, preserved eggs, food, pipette, feeding spoon and full instructions. In addition this deluxe kit also has illuminating blue LED lights built into the base of the tank and a magnifier to watch them hatch.
The added lighting allows you to watch the critters swim at night and makes a great addition to the bedroom. Batteries included, for ages 6+.
