Sea Monkeys Archive



Sea Monkeys were one of the really cool inventions of the 60's. There are not many kids who have not had one of those groovy Sea Monkey tanks. They are actually a special species of brine shrimp called Artemia NYOS. Scientists discovered a way encase their eggs in crystals. They can survive in this state for quite some time, so they can be packaged and sold in stores. Sea Monkeys can live as long as two years, and can grow to an enormous 3/4" in length.

Sea Monkeys are still available to this day. They have some great new products like a Sea Monkey watch that hold real live Sea Monkeys.
