Year 1B have been investigating Aqua Dragons called
Cryptobiosis, This is similar to Sea
Monkeys, the eggs coming alive once water is added. These eggs can survive up to 20 years before
immersed in water!
Aqua Dragons have three eyes and a pair of fins which they use to
breathe, eat and swim (now that's multi-tasking!). The males have a mane on
their heads, while the females often display a bulb on their backs.
They can live up to 6 months as long as the temperature, light and
water conditions are right. We have found that the Aqua Dragons are
attracted to light and we have been using a torch to train them to do tricks.
We hope you enjoy our photographs.
