When you ask your mom for a puppy and she shoots you down, so you move down to a cat and she shoots that down, so you ask for a duck and she appropriately shoots that down, chinchilla, nope, hamster, nu-huh, dino, yeah sure. I’m sorry to tell you, your mother is insane. UNLESS she knows about the Dino Pet.
The Dino Pet is a project Kickstarting now trying to get up to a goal of $50,000. As I write they’re sitting at $49,052 and they have 25 days left. So I’m hopeful that they make it. The Dino Pet is a bioluminescent night light/pet. For a donation of $40 you can back this project and you’re promised a Dino Pet.
Dinoflagellata, that’s what makes the Dino Pet special. Dinoflagellata is a bioluminescent algae that glows when it’s agitated. So, shake this baby up like a magic eight ball and you have yourself a little glowing long-neck. The little dinos live for 1-3 months but with proper feeding and nurturing and love they can live indefinitely. Since there doesn’t appear to be a way to open up you pet and shove in a bagel I’m guessing you feed it like a plant and leave it in the sun. I’ll be backing this one, as soon as some one throws a hand full of $20s at me on the street.
