10-20% of dino species can make cysts with calcium or silicate walls. I think this is how mine survived on the rock. Peroxide may just not be a strong enough acid. I went and looked them up in my bio textbook.. sheesh. I remember seeing fossilized dino cysts in archaeology too.

I suppose you could use the small tank as a test chamber for things that kill them?
