Triops longicaudatus, commonly known as longtail tadpole shrimp, are fascinating little critters that primarily hail from North and Central America. They’ve also been found in other parts of the world, showing how adaptable they are to various climates and conditions. Typically, they grow to a size of around 2 to 3 inches. Triops longicaudatus are exceptionally low-maintenance. They’re not picky about their habitat; a simple aquarium or even a large repurposed container or enclosure can suffice. These critters are not fussy eaters; standard Triops food pellets and occasional vegetable scraps will do just fine. The eggs of triops longicaudatus are as hardy as the adults, capable of surviving dry spells in a dormant state and hatching once conditions become favourable. This makes starting your own colony remarkably easy, requiring little more than adding the eggs to a water-filled habitat. They grow fast too, reaching maturity in a few weeks, which makes them great for educational projects or simply as pets that you can quickly see develop from hatchlings into fascinating prehistoric creatures.

We pride ourselves on our attention to detail- it’s a priority that your critters are safe & snugly packed.

We’re confident in the quality husbandry, shipping, and packaging of our livestock. On the rare occasion an animal arrives in poor condition, we will provide credit for the cost of that animal. If all animals in the shipment arrive in poor condition, we will also provide credit for the postage.

We try to make it as easy as possible to help any unwell critters, and ensure you can get your money back. There are a couple of steps to go through before a refund can be issued.

If you’ve received an unwell animal in the mail:

1. If it is safe to do so, (your pet is not medically significant or harmful) please remove the animal from its transport container, ideally onto your hand. We ask this as invertebrates, particularly insects, are experts at ‘playing dead’.

2. To provide you with the best advice going forward and to confirm the condition of your pet, we kindly request a short video of the animal in question before your refund can be processed. This can be uploaded on our ‘live guarantee refunds form’, or you can email it straight to us.

3. We typically respond within 24 hours, but please allow 1-3 working days for a response. Once it’s confirmed that you are eligible for a refund, we’ll get process the credit to your account.

We’ll need this information to reach us within 7 days after you’ve received your pet. We cannot provide any live guarantee to animals that have been refused, returned, or not collected.
