Growing, growing, growing

I'm not the only one who's interested in the triops' development, especially now that they're big enough to see without any sort of magnification (or squinting).

Of course, now that we can see them, Liza is convinced that their name is false advertising, since you can only see two eyes.
Of course, for all the triops anatomy we know, those dark spots could be there to disguise the true location of its eyes, especially since they show up as tinted areas on the shells that these little dudes keep molting all over the tank.  

While we wait for them to get big enough to see the actual eye locations for certain, at least they're continuing to be entertaining.  This is the THIRD time I've fed them today.  Greedy little buggers.
