What are Sea Monkeys? That’s a great question and we’re glad you asked! These tiny aquatic creatures are a hybrid breed of brine shrimp. The thing that makes them amazing is that they are in a form of cryptobiosis. This means that the Sea Monkey eggs are in a state of suspended animation until they get wet.
Sea Monkeys aren’t really monkeys, but they do grow a monkey-like tail. When you receive your Sea Monkey kit, you’ll notice that Packet number 2 appears to be full of dust. This is, in fact, the dried Sea Monkey eggs. When you add them to a tank of salt water, the eggs will come to life and start growing. It’s absolutely fascinating!
