Wild triops in their natural habitat are strange and fascinating creatures

This little guy looks like something out of a 90s alien flick.

A triops is a fascinating crustacean that has not changed much in the past 70 million years. Triops can be found in desert mesas, where they also lay eggs as small as grains of sand. In the video, it squirms around in the palm of the man’s hand until he lowers it back into the water. The little guy sticks around for a while before dashing off into the water.
