There is a genus of very small crustaceans living in salt lakes. These animals feed on other microscopic organisms such as algae and bacteria. The brine shrimps lay eggs from which larvae develop. These grow up to juvenile crustaceans within a few weeks. When salt lakes dry up most of the organisms dwelling in them perish. But what happens to the eggs? This you shall find out!
