National Sea Monkey Day

May 16 marks the observance of National Sea Monkey Day, dedicated to celebrating the fascinating creatures that come to life when submerged in water. Sea-Monkey is the trademark for a type of crustacean known as Brine Shrimp, marketed as novelty aquarium pets in hatching kits. Introduced by Harold Von Braunhut in 1957, the product gained widespread promotion in comic books and continues to have a place in popular culture. The instantaneous birth of these remarkable creatures upon contact with water captivates both children and adults alike.
