Aqua Dragons in Space
Observe the entire life-cycle of these fascinating creatures; Aqua Dragons are 3-eyed, long tailed aquatic crustaceans, their scientific name is Artemia salina and they have existed in the seas and salty lakes of earth for millions of years
The preserved Aqua Dragons eggs are in a state of hibernation called Cryptobiosis, and need your help to bring them to life! They hatch in 2-3 days and the life cycle project takes around 45-60 days to complete.
Most incredibly, a payload of Aqua Dragon eggs, including the eggs in your kit, was sent to space creating the Aqua Dragons Collector’s Edition, Live Astro Pets. The eggs were tracked on a mission surpassing the Earth’s stratosphere into near space, and were then recovered.
With full instructions on how to assemble the Asteroid tank, and how to hatch and care for the Aqua Dragons, you can enjoy watching them eat, grow and swim - even at night as the Asteroid tank has a glow in the dark base!
A great educational kit to introduce and encourage children to learn about the life-cycle, anatomy and behaviour of these animals, and maybe even excite an interest in space flight!
