The Original Sea Monkeys Ocean Zoo

Sea Monkeys are a novelty aquarium pet, a type of brine shrimp which undergoes cryptobiosis.

Developed in the US by Harold Von Braunhut the shrimp are sold as eggs to be added to water. He collaborated with a marine biologist to develop a  mix of nutrients and chemicals in dry form to create an accommodating habitat for shrimp to survive.

Astronaut John Glenn took Sea Monkeys into space in 1998 aboard Space Shuttle Discovery.
