About Sea Monkeys

Sea-Monkeys® are a true miracle of nature. They exist in suspended animation inside their tiny eggs for many years.

The instant-life crystals, in which the eggs are enclosed, preserve their viability and help to extend still further their un-hatched life span!

Sea-Monkeys® are real Time-Travelers asleep in biological time capsules for their strange journey into the future!

The joy of watching Sea-Monkeys® grow offers a lot more than just pure fun. It is one of the outstanding educational experiences of a lifetime, because the entire life-cycle of these unique creatures are fully recreated. Conceived in 1960 as a biological novelty, the fantasy has transformed into brilliant reality.

Frequently Asked QuestionsVideos and Guides

Sea-Monkeys® are a unique type of brine shrimp, known by the scientific name of Artemia NYOS.

We not only unlocked the most elusive secrets of their life cycle, we created new formulas to keep them alive under conditions found in the average home - an accomplishment never before achieved!

Finally, after years of cross-breeding, we developed a hybrid. These amazing new hybrids grow larger and live longer than any "natural" variety of brine shrimp.

Resulting from the most exquisitely sophisticated aquaculture technology, by true pioneers in this science, only the utmost resources of a leading marine biological research centre working for a span of many years has made this project a complete success.
