Further Information

Notes (MWS) A species of Triops widely sold for rearing as a pet. The instructions are very precise and the resulting shrimp-sized crustacean is most endearing. Just make sure you kill any unhatched eggs with disinfectant before disposing of the water.

It may be expected to turn up in wild habitats, but allegedy requires warm water (73°F) for development so may only persist in artifically heated water.
