YOU are Prehistoric!
YOU will feel sooo young when YOU wear the Genuine Triceratops Tooth Fossil Necklace. The necklace features a genuine Triceratops Horridus tooth from Hell Creek, Montana. The tooth dates back approximately 70 to 65 million years ago to the Cretaceous era.
Triceratops' teeth lined the inside of their jaws in groups called batteries, which contained 36 to 40 tooth columns in each side of each jaw with 3 to 5 stacked teeth per column (Dodson, P., The Dinosauria).
The Triceratops' teeth measure approximately 3/4in high x 5/8in wide x 3/8in long (20mm x 16mm x 9mm). The Triceratops' teeth have an aged appearance due to their epic history! Please be careful handling teeth has they may be sharp.
The Genuine Triceratops Tooth Fossil Necklace lies flat against the skin.
YOU will receive one tooth on a long thin sterling bail on a sterling silver chain. YOU may choose a 16in or 18in sterling 1.4mm chain. The Genuine Triceratops Tooth Fossil Necklace comes in a pretty pillbox gift tin.
Every purchase includes a fun Grow-Your-Own Fossil Look-a-Like. The grown fossils resemble trilobites, which were creatures that lived in the Paleozoic era about 500-250 million years ago. The Grow-Your-Own Fossil Look-a-Like comes with instructions and YOU add water to them like sea monkeys. Although they are not trilobites, the grown fossils look a lot like them with their shield heads, walking legs, gills, and segmented bodies. They are identified as Crustacea: Branchiopoda found in ephemeral pools and their eggs are really hardy and can dry up and "hatch" after a long rain or in your case; in a large glass jar filled with water.
What YOU can expect with your Grow-Your-Own Fossil Look-a-Like:
Day 1: Just a murky mess!
Day 3: Tiny little white fairy shrimp and tiny crustaceans.
Day 4: They look an awfully lot like sea monkeys now!
Day 6: In the afternoon, YOU will swear they got bigger since the morning!
Day 15: They double in size every day and get bigger and bigger! Maybe add a nail-head sized amount of fish food, water looks murky and they like it like that, you may add a little room temp water a little at a time.
Day 30: They no longer have a transparent look, they developed a hard-looking shell.
The grown fossils are big suckers and will eventually lay eggs and die. They have a life span of 30-90 days.
