Weird creature still in existence

I found this on a website that says this is one of the weirdest creatures ever found. An "unknown" creature. But then, I looked up into it and wikipedia says it's a TRIOPS - "a genus of small crustaceans in the order Notostraca (tadpole shrimp)". These creatures are considered as living fossils because they've been here on earth since 300 million years ago and still existing. These creatures are really cool rather than weird because other species as old as this one are already labeled as extinct.

If ever you get to see a Triops, don't poke it like the person doing in this video. This specie is way way way much older than you, lived longer than you, most probably might live longer than you, so show some respect. Good thing dinosaurs are not the living fossils.

I grew these out of a package like powder and they're amazing. Instead of poking the poor thing, put it in water!

That's a kabuto. If you train it to level 40 it evolves into kabutops.
