Wild Environmental Science Under Water City Triopolis Kit
Build a utopia and hatch prehistoric critters with the Underwater City Triopolis. Triops are ‘living fossils’ which are identical to their prehistoric kin from millions of years ago. They can survive by suspended animation which helps them stop their biological clock. The Triops will begin to hatch within 2-3 days! As children conduct experiments, they will learn about Triop behavior, eating habits, movement patterns and more. This triops growing kit includes safe, high-quality ingredients and a full-color education and instruction booklet which includes detailed, step-by-step illustrations. This live animal kit Triop kit provides the ideal opportunity to study the behaviors of a fast-growing creature that hasn’t changed in a million years. Adult supervision is recommended. For ages 8+.
Includes: a plastic tank, cleaning siphon, thermometer, decorative stickers, 2 gravel types, sand, glowing pebbles, triop food and 8-12 eggs. Use the included guide for helpful tips on triop care, feeding and tank maintenance.
