Aqua Dragons are tiny aquatic creatures that 'come to life' when your child places their eggs into a water tank, and their eggs hatch. Your child will watch in amazement as these minature crustaceans swim, play, eat, communicate, reproduce and grow up to two centimetres in length, over their six month life span.
Aqua Dragon’s scientific name is Artemia Salina. These tiny creatures have been living in the sea and in salty lakes on the earth for millions of years including while dinosaurs roamed the earth! Their very efficient way of living and reproducing has enabled them to arrive to todays day almost exactly as they were millions of years ago. They are live acuatic beings, from the crustaceafamily, they look a little like sea horses with a curly tail, and their eggs have an amazing capacity called cryptobiosiswhich means they can be dried and stay alive only to hatch many years later. Tests have found that eggs kept in air sealed containers for up to 20 years still hatched when they were returned to water.
