Dinosaurs were land dwelling reptiles (or possibly mammals), as interesting as they are, triops are not actually dinosaurs, not even close. no.gif

However, triops are still pretty cool. I tried to hatch some a couple of months ago, but it didn't work for me. I followed the instructions and waited, but nothing happened. crying.gif  I still have a few eggs, so I should try again. They came in a different package than yours, so maybeit's just the brand or something. disgust.gif

I had a sea monkey once!  I named him Banjo, in honor of the one on Space Ghost: Coast to Coast. He got to about a centimeter long, when my grandma killed him!   crying.gif

Kay, can a mod change it to "Living Fossils" ? I obviously made a mistake that's been corrected once already, but thanks for your concern.

Sea monkeys are indeed real. They are a type brine shrimp. They are pretty cool to give a go at once or twice but, unlike the images onthe box, they do not wear little crowns and stuff. They used to be advertised in the back pages of comic books. In the ads they make them out to be just this side of Atlantis or something.

Triops I'd never seen before. I know of the prehistoric sea dweller that looked a lot like these things though. From the picture that was provided, I thought that they were probably some type of horse shoe crab. I guess that they might some kind of distant relative.

Still, if I see them inthestore I'll deffinately have to buy a box and give it a whirl. I think that I've had just about everything else over the years!
