Dino Pet Is A Living Toy That Glows In The Dark


What is the Dino Pet? The Dino Pet is a living, interactive ‘pet’ that photosynthesizes during the day and glows brilliantly when you play with it at night.

The alluring blue glow emitted by the Dino Pet is bioluminescence, made from microscopic sea life called dinoflagellates.

By using sunlight, water and nutrients, instead of batteries or electricity, the Dino Pet allows you to hold one of nature’s most magical occurrences in the palm of your hand.

Far more than a toy, the Dino Pet is a contemporary living art piece, introductory pet, biological magic trick, conversation starter and science lesson that instills a sense of wonder in people of all ages.

Shake It On

Your Dino Pet lights up in response to mechanical stimulation — shaking! Give your Dino Pet a little shake to see the beautiful bioluminescence of the dinoflagellates within. Make sure to play with your Dino Pet in the darkest room possible. Even a small bit of ambient light can mask the bioluminescence. (Important note: Dino Pet only lights up when shaken…at night…in a dark room.
