My Seamonkeys are Married
March 30, 2008
I can tell because the female seamonkeys publicly undermine the little male seamonkeys at social events.
Seamonkeys are brine shrimp and when they come of age, the males hold on to the females and they swim together for a couple of days. The females have two wads at the base of the tail that are egg sacks. The eggs are pink in color and eventually drop off.
Sadly, as soon as the eggs are laid other adult seamonkeys devour the eggs. It’s damned tough being a brine shrimp.
My kids saw the Seamonkeys swimming together and asked, “What are they doing, daddy?”
I said, “When they swim together like that it means they got married.”
