Our pet supply has dwindled over the last year. We used to have 26 pets (most of those were fish). Now we have three: a cat, a dog, and a frog. My nine-year-old son didn't think that was good enough. So when we went to Barnes and Noble book store and spotted a kit for growing triops, my son insisted we buy it. (Who knew you could find pets at a book store?)
A few days ago, we set up the aquarium (these are water creatures). We emptied half of the egg packet and waited for something to happen. Today something happened. Three baby triops hatched. What the heck is a triop? Let me show you:
Isn't it cute? Don't you want to snuggle up next to it?
Triops were around during the time of the dinosaurs. Somehow they managed to survive global warming and environmental pollution. Now let's see how long they survive in my son's room!
Hope you all have a very Happy New Year! Best wishes for 2014!
