Triops found in Scotsland

Scotland finds Triops cancriformis alive and well after thought extinct for more than fifty years.

Whilst the United Kingdom has had Triops in England for quite some time now (ok, 220 million years), they were not thought to exist elsewhere in the U.K.
The Triops cancriformis in the U.K. are actually an endangered species as more and more of their native pools are dried up and converted to farm or housing land.
