Today's Reason to Celebrate

May 16, 2012 was

National Sea-Monkey Day

Today is National Sea-Monkey Day! Sea-monkeys, which are also called “brine shrimp,” are small crustaceans that live in salt lakes. People in the United States have been keeping sea-monkeys as pets since the 1960s. Ever wondered how the sea-monkey got its name? These underwater creatures have long tails and demonstrate playful, monkey-like behavior!

One of the most fascinating characteristics of the sea-monkey is its ability to live for years as an egg before hatching. Purchased sea-monkeys only begin to hatch and grow once you’ve added the proper nutrients to the water environment. Fun Fact: Sea-monkeys have three eyes and breathe through their feet!

To celebrate National Sea-Monkey Day, buy some sea-monkeys of your own and enjoy watching them grow!
