My Sea-Monkeys are two months old today!
For those who missed my previous posts (see debbieohi.com/book-seamonkey-blog/): I'm raising Sea-Monkeys as part of my research for illustrating Sea-Monkey and Bob, a new picture book written by Aaron Reynolds and coming out from Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers in Fall 2015.
My UK friend Annie Walker has promised to bake a birthday cake for every Sea-Monkey who survives a full year.
At this point, the surviving Sea-Monkeys are Micky, Peter, Nyarlathotep, Alan, Mary Margaret, Bilbo, Sojourner, Boris, Pochyk, Pippa, Sea Monkey Killing Unit #1, Tarquin, Brunhilda, Delphine, Monkey Doo and Russell.
In the video I just took, you'll notice one of the larger Sea-Monkeys swimming in a jerky motion near the surface; this is Pippa. As far as I can tell from my research, Pippa is giving birth RIGHT NOW!!
