Sea Monkey, the very phrase conjures up childhood memories, those little things, neither monkeys nor from the ocean still tug on the nostalgic heart strings a little bit - Who doesn't remember ordering a Sea Monkey kit from the back of a comic book. But seriously, they are a fun pet that can teach kids responsibility, and for less than $10 US can be a doorway into learning about science in general, besides that, they are lots of fun to have and watch swimming around.

Just what are they? Here is an expert from the official Sea-Monkey website. "Are they Brine Shrimp?Sea-Monkeys® are a unique species of brine shrimp, known by the scientific name of Artemia NYOS. We not only unlocked the most elusive secrets of their life cycle, we created new formulas to keep them alive under conditions found in the average home—an accomplishment never before achieved! Finally, after years of crossbreeding, we developed a hybrid. These amazing new hybrids grow larger and live longer than any "natural" variety of brine shrimp. Resulting from the most exquisitely sophisticated “aquaculture technology”, by true pioneers in this science, only the utmost resources of a leading marine biological research center working for a span of many years has made this project a complete success." *Note from Scott -Check out the anatomy of the Sea-Monkey. The black spots in the picture of the female are eggs.
