Life in the sea (there are more than just complex animals in there, you know) ranges from the huge to the tiny, and it’s all pretty cool. Some of it is dangerous, some of it is a pain in the butt as far as the environment is concerned. Then some of it is harmless but fascinating. That is where this little guy fits right in. One of the things that makes them so cool is that they are bioluminescent. This means that they provide their own light! Lots of different creatures can do that, especially in the sea, though it’s common to the critters that live really deep, where the sun’s rays don’t shine. Even though scientists don’t fully know why animals use it, especially the littler guys like this, some of the larger animals use it as a warning to fend off predators, or possibly to attract mates, a sort of visual language.
Giant Microbes’ Sea Sparkle is both cuddly and safe, made of 100% kid-friendly materials. He even comes with a little tag that tells you all about where he lives, what he eats, and what he does. Giant Microbes are educational and fun (See? And you thought learning stuff was dull).
Sea Sparkles aren’t solitary, they can form into large groups called ‘blooms’ and when they are disturbed, they might light up, casting a bright glow all around. Unlike the light up critters of the deep, the sea sparkles live in relatively shallow water, where the sun’s rays can stimulate their main food source, plankton. Be sure to keep a look out for this bright little guy and all his friends the next time you visit the ocean!
