The Dino Pet is a new kind of pet that photosynthesizes during the day and glows brilliantly when you play with it at night. The alluring blue light emitted by the Dino Pet is bioluminescence, made from the dinoflagellates — a type of plankton — found within the apatosaurus-shaped aquarium. By using sunlight, water and nutrients, instead of batteries and electricity, the Dino Pet allows you to hold one of nature's most magical occurrences in the palm of your hand. Far more than a toy, the Dino Pet is a living art piece, introductory pet, biological magic trick, conversation starter, and science lesson, all rolled into one
Your dino arrives with a redeemable code that you must use to order your dinoflagellates, free of charge. This two-step shipping process ensures that your Dino Pet comes to life without any hiccups or delays, creating living art that will come alive.
