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.
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.

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 6 years of age.
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

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.
Hang on little Aquasaur buddy - your new family is coming! Our customer was promptly shipped new eggs. Hatch another plan if your eggs don't make it - please visit our Returns & Exchanges center!
