Where Aqua Dragons come from?
They are from the crustacean family, a species called Artemia Salina. They have been living in salt lakes and seas on Earth since prehistoric times. Aqua Dragons eggs have a natural ability to dry out and survive droughts, waiting to come in contact with water to hatch, this special ability to hibernate. In the following 50 days after hatching, these small beings can grow up to 1cm long and live from 50 days to a few months. The perfect first pet!
