  1. …I think they are….not…..prehistoric…….creatures.

  2. These things actually hatched. From the other comments, they probably didn’t raise them correctly. My triops had lived for about 6 weeks.

  3. These things stink!!! mine hatched and died 3 days later!!! and one of them ate the other and i fed them well!!! :(

  4. We bought a triops kit, nothing hatched. Sent away for replacement eggs, nothing hatched. Not impressed. We followed the instructions to a T.

  5. How long do they live for?

  6. ive had them before, it was a little hard for me to give them up

  7. Oh and by the way if you dont feed them they will eat one and other.
