The Sea Monkey

Updated on February 16, 2015

Meet the Sea Monkeys

If you grew up in the 1980s and or love comic books, you probably know what Sea Monkeys are. My eldest sister had them when I was very young. She really loved them and if you want a low energy, easy pet Sea Monkeys are for you. They don't look like monkeys and they only know so many tricks, but if you'd like a pet for yourself and or child and you live in an apartment or your kid is bad with pets, these little shrimp might be the pet for you.

I did all the art here and also added some videos so you can see what Sea Monkeys are really like.

Sometime before the cannibal fish indecent of the late 1980s, my sister had Sea Monkeys. She had them for awhile, she was even able to revive them after many of them died. This is by adding a magic powder that actually revives any Sea Monkey egg hadn't hatched before, some eggs need an extra push. One day she awoke to find most of the water emptied from the tank, her Sea Monkeys had been murdered, by who? The perpetrator of the crime never caught. All I know is it wasn't me and we don't have a cat. I'm highly allergic.

About Them

Sea-Monkeys® are almost miracle of nature. Their eggs can survive after many years of being in their pouches. They are very small and are related to brine shrimp called Artemia NYOS. This is just a large group of very small pets, they are an educational tool for your children. You put the pouch of eggs into the water and chemicals and the eggs hatch and start to grow.

Sea-Monkeys® will live and have more sea monkeys, sometimes they die. You can contract the company and they say that they will send you a new pouch of eggs and one pack of water purifier, but that is only if you order the mail order kind. There are a lot more products through mail order then there are online.

These creatures have been crossbred to be larger and stronger than the ones we had as children.

Mexican walking Fish

The Mexican walking fish isn't actually a fish, they're an aquatic salamander native to Mexico. They're the coolest looking animal. They look like the sea monkey cartoons. These salamanders or axolotls (pronounced ACK-suh-LAH-tuhl) are endangered and I would like you to know about them. I only found out about them a year or so ago, but had no idea on how to help them until now.

The Mexican Walking Fish is endangered and you can read more about them on my Mexican walking fish lens.

      I was always fascinated by sea monkeys when I was young, it seemed they were on the back of every comic book. Its amazing how long their eggs can last and nice to know that there are ways that they can live long and happy lives. Now, the Mexcican Walking Fish sure is a cutie.
