Aqua Dragons Live Astro Pets
Aqua Dragons are real live aquatic creatures that you can hatch and grow at home. Their scientific name is Artemia Salinas and they have been living in the sea and salty lakes for millions of years; right back to the time when dinosaurs roamed the Earth!
From the crustacea family, Aqua Dragons look like tiny three-eyed, long-tailed, hairy-headed dragons that grow up to 2cm long. Their eggs have an amazing capacity called cryptobiosis which means they can dry out and stay alive only to hatch many years later. Tests have found that eggs kept in air sealed containers for up to 20 years still hatched when they were returned to water.
The Aqua Dragons line of products enables children and animal lovers of all ages to hatch and grow a generation of these amazing creatures at home. Caring for your Aqua Dragons you will see them eat, play, grow and learn about the differences between males and females and even how they reproduce.
This “In Space” set includes eggs that have been sent on their own space mission, beyond the stratosphere, on a specially commissioned helium balloon flight. Prior to being packaged into their exclusive “In Space” sachets millions of Aqua Dragons eggs were sent in bulk on a tracked mission to near-space. The flight was filmed and is available to view via the Aqua Dragons App or directly online via YouTube.
A signed Certificate of Authenticity of Space flight is contained within the pack detailing the mission name, flight date, flight time, altitude reached and a link to find the flight video online.
This cool asteroid shaped tank glows in the dark and has a magnifying glass incorporated into the tank lid. Fill the tank with 400ml of bottled water, add the contents of the egg sachet and they miraculously hatch within just 2-3 days. Children with love to own and care for their very own pets that have been sent to space. In total this life-cycle project takes 45-60 days. The perfect first pet! Also includes an invite to download the free Aqua Dragons Investigator App with augmented reality, a super-cool game and educational content. App is available for iPhone and Android devices.
Packaging and instructions are multi-lingual including English, French, German and Spanish.
