Grow amazing pond monsters with Triop World! Our triop world kit has been specially designed by naturalist Nick Baker. When you add water to the little packet of ‘dirt’ that is included in this kit you will be launching the bizarre life of an ancient little animal that has been doing the same thing for some 300 million years! This kit is a hands-on guide for budding naturalists and contains the equipment you need to observe and study the lifecycle of triops. It is designed to be fun and informative for kids of all ages.

“They first stepped onto the scene somewhere in the Triassic period and since then they have witnessed many large and spectacular creatures, including the dinosaurs, come and go.” Nick Baker

When is the best time of year to set up my Triop World kit? The best time of year to use this kit is in the summer months between May and September as Triops will only hatch when the water temperature is above 21°c and there is at least 12 hours of daylight.

Kit contains:

  • Tank & lid
  • Triop eggs
  • Triop food
  • Pipette
  • Sand

You will also need:

  • A bottle of spring water or supply of clean rainwater
