Triops have three eyes

For the They Might Be Giants fans out there, it will come as no surprise that there is a 3 eyed crustacean named Triops. That you can buy triops eggs at the Harvard Museum of Natural History was certainly a surprise to us. Unfortunately we forgot to keep a close eye on the container and ended up with only two (we think they were hungry). Ethan named them Mark and James (James was the bigger and later ate Mark which the kids took quite well) and they were the boys first pets. James recently had a burial at sea so we are again petless.
