The other day I noticed a garage sale within walking distance of our house and found this Triops hatching kit for only $4! I love Smithsonian kits and was very excited to find this and when I brought it home, the kids were both just as excited and can not wait to try this out! Triops are basically considered Dinosaur Shrimp and I am hoping they are just as fun as the Sea Monkeys I had as a kid. I think we will be doing this today or sometime this week anyway and we look forward to getting to hatch and observe these wonderful little critters! The only thing this was missing was the lid to the tank so now our biggest problem will be to keep the cat from drinking the water or perhaps trying to eat the shrimp!
