Triassic Triops are actual prehistoric creatures which are identical to their prehistoric kin. They survived the centuries during interrupted states of suspended animation or diapause. This state of suspended animation enables the Triops to survive seasonal drought. Triassic Triops permits you to grow and study the behavior of an amazing creature that hasn't changed in a million years.

Triops are crustaceans that can be traced back to the prehistoric times. These three-eyed creatures grow up to 3 inches in length in their 20-90 day life span, sometimes doubling in size in a single day! Triops are brightly colored due to hemoglobin in the blood and pigment in their connective tissue. 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 lets. These intriguing creatures make great pets as they are very interesting to observe. Triops: way cooler, bigger and more active than sea monkeys.
