5 places you should take your sea monkey


Have you ever heard of sea monkeys? (Hint: They’re not monkeys!) They’re tiny shrimp that have been popular pets for over 50 years. Sea monkeys begin their life inside an egg. When the egg is placed in water, a sea monkey hatches in about a day. And just like that… instant pet! There's a National Sea Monkey Day in May. To celebrate, we’d say every sea monkey deserves a day out. So where should you take your pet sea monkey?

1. To the park

2. To the movies

And let your sea monkey pick which film you’ll watch, as well as the snacks. OK, maybe not the snacks…

3. To the aquarium

So your sea monkey can catch up with some of its distant underwater relatives.

4. On a roller coaster

After a lifetime underwater, your sea monkey might enjoy soaring through the sky for a moment or two!

5. For a bike ride

Because who doesn’t love a bike ride? Especially when you don’t have to do any of the pedalling!
