Pets are fun, but they require a lot of time and attention. The Dino Pet is a dinosaur-shaped aquarium of low maintenance that doubles as a night light.

Instead of one pet, you’re getting countless new friends. The Dino Pet is filled with water and a bunch of little creatures called dinoflagellates (a type of plankton) who glow whenever you shake the dino. Best of all, there’s no batteries or charging required – these guys just need a little sunlight and the included Dino Food and they’re happy. Pretty nifty.

Each pet comes with a starter pack of food and a coupon for a free refill when the time comes. After all, glowing plankton need food to stay happy and healthy. A perfect nightlight for the kids or an awesome art object for any room of the house, this dino is the perfect low-maintenance “pet.”

The Dino Pet is available on the Daily Dot Store for $49.90 (regularly $60.90).
