National Geographic Kids Magazine: The Fossil Regeneration Unit

The mailer was sent to media buyers across South Africa, when they [the ad space buying people] received the ‘Unit’ the Triops eggs were tiny, miniscule dots in the test tubes, but in one short week they grew into prehistoric-looking creatures almost the length of your thumb! Included in the pack was an interactive CD with a program to track their Triops’ growth and find out the facts about them, as well as the National Geographic Kids rate card and advertising details.

It's an ancient crustacean-like creature that has been around for over 200 million years, basically its a dinosaur shrimp!
