Nick Baker's My Living World Triops
In a dry and arid desert, storm clouds gather. It begins to rain and small ponds form on the earth. This triggers an amazing biological event; tiny eggs that have lain dormant for years come to life! A week later, the pond is teaming with weird and wonderful creatures, ‘fairy shrimp’, ‘clam shrimp’ and ‘daphnia’. But the biggest and most impressive of these animals are the Triops – whose ancestors date back to the time when dinosaurs roamed the earth. In this amazing kit watch your Triops grow and develop from hatchlings, study the fascinating Triop life cycle and watch them as they double in size every day. Triops hatch in 24 hours can and grow up to 4cm long and have an incredible life cycle.
