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! 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. Recommended for ages 8 and up.
