Own Your Own Living Bioluminescent Pet!
The Dino Pet is a new kind of living 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 dinoflagellates — a type of single-celled plankton — found within the dinosaur-shaped micro-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. Every year, thousands of people travel the world to experience the magic of bioluminescence in nature. The Dino Pet lets you bring this beautiful phenomenon into the comfort of your own home, and enjoy it night after night.
Far more than a toy, the Dino Pet is a contemporary living art piece, introductory pet, biological magic trick, conversation starter and science lesson that instill a sense of wonder in people of all ages.
What happens if my kids, my pet or I would accidentally drink these dinos? While we recommend that you do not drink the dinoflagellates because they live in salt water that will probably give you a tummy ache, the Pyrocystis fusiformis species of dinoflagellates (aka phytoplankton) and filtered sea water used are nontoxic.
Will they harm my plumbing if I spill them down the drain? No.
How do I feed my dinos? Customers redeeming the Dino Pet 'Fill'er Up Card" with receive both a pouch of living Dinoflagellates and a pouch of Dino Food.
What is the actual Dino Pet container made of? The DinoPet is made of ABS plastic that has been tested and meets CPSIA compliance standards.
