Who says dinosaurs are extinct? Now you can raise "Triops Sauncauditus" (Aquasaurs) in your own bedroom!

Your kids will be excited. They'll be raising all sorts of ruckus when they open the cool aquarium with erupting underwater volcano model, and super cool Trilobites (Aquasaur cousins) as the backdrop.

You help them with the details. . . finding a stable surface with moderate temperature, sticking the adhesive thermometer to the tank, pouring in water and putting the eggs in!

Within one or two days, the tiny Aquasaur babies have hatched and are doing laps around the tank. With flat heads, three eyes, skeletons on the outside of their bodies, sharp lateral fins, and forked tails, they are the epicenter of a child's world.

Your kids flourish as dinosaur parents. They get the Aquasaurs to move toward them by shining flashlights, they swell with pride as their Aquasaurs grow visibly every day, and praise their accomplishments every time they shed another exoskeleton.

Aquasaur Facts:
  • Aquasaurs are relatives of Trilobites
  • Aquasaurs can be found on every continent except Antarctica
  • The Aquasaur egg has a thick shell that is resistant to heat, frost and dryness.
  • The baby Aquasaur is called a nauplis (Naw-plee-us)
  • An Aquasaur's skeleton is outside of its body, not inside like a mammal's.
  • An Aquasaur grows it sheds its skeleton many times.
  • Aquasaurs breathe through their feet.
  • Aquasaurs have 35 to 70 pairs of legs for swimming and bringing food to their mouths.
  • As Aquasaurs grow the larger ones can eat the smaller ones.
  • Aquasaurs may grow up to 2 inches in length.
  • Aquasaurs typically live for around 90 days.

    Product review of Aquasaurs
    Posted 1/14/2013 by Lynetta Wood

    The product was easy to set up but once the water was in the aquarium it was extremely flimsy and crumpled easily. We stablized it with a baking sheet. The eggs did not hatch and my nephew was really upset.

    Great service is eggs-actly what you can expect. A replacement was promptly shipped for the defective Aquasaur unit. Visit the Returns & Exchanges Center for details.

    Information about Aquasaurs
    Posted 12/28/2012 by Lynetta Wood

    Gave it as a present to my nephew. Followed the instructions and the eggs have yet to hatch. It has been 3 days now. The container that you are to use is flimsy and collapses easy. I would not recommend for anyone under the age of 9 to use this product. Even at 9 they need to have an adult to help them.

    My rating of Aquasaurs
    Posted 3/3/2012 by Karan Blackmer

    We thought that the instructions were a little confusing. The eggs came in the little container and not a packet like the instructions talked about. Plus... and we did follow the instructions exactly - the little aquasaurs all died except for one.
