The day of the Sea-Monkeys
Sea-Monkeys are certainly among the animals that are pitied particularly intensively by parents. No wonder! After all, they are usually part of play sets, in which context it is the children's task to breed, feed and care for the animals.
"Strangely enough", however, it soon turns out that the little animals belong rather to the non-communicative species of living beings. They don't make any noise, don't fetch and don't let themselves be taken for a walk.
In short: the life of the typical Sea-Monkey is comparatively manageable and not very varied. The time that a day of Sea-Monkey was brought into being was more than superfluous. After all, they have to endure quite a lot in their coexistence with humans.
But the little crawlers (or better said: swimmers) are more exciting than it might seem at first sight! Because: this is actually a "living fossil", which has been living on our planet in a subspecies for several million years. Perhaps also because of its adaptability and robust lifestyle, this animal has managed to become a box-office hit in toy stores. A crab that manages to lay eggs, which can then remain in the ground for decades, could well be called a "little star".
That is why the Sea-Monkeys deserves its own day!
How can the breeding in a (perhaps too small) tank, the constant swimming along the glass and the constant fear of being exposed be made up for? Quite clearly: with a day of your own!
How about sprinkling your primeval crayfish with a particularly tasty portion of food on 16 May? Maybe they deserve their own names after all this time?
With all the fun that these interesting little animals bring with them, you should not forget that they are living creatures... without fur, not very sweet but definitely cult and absolutely adorable!
