It is rather unfortunate, but our triop project has had to come to an abrupt end …. thanks to our cat! Yes, you’ve guessed it … our cat managed to pull the triop tank off of the shelf spilling gravel, mud, sand and 2 and a half litres of water all over the carpet!! Sadly the triop was no where to be found (I’m assuming it was eaten).
This meant we were unable to complete all of the activities we had planned so our project folder does not look as exciting as we hoped it would. Be we shall be repeating this project in future insha’Allah for the younger ones to be able to take part.
Our triop grew to almost 3cms in length before it met its untimely death. And we managed to get a great picture of the remainder of its shed skin …. eeeeewww!!
