Tardigrades

Four-legged microscopic creatures who can survive in almost any situation.

Tardigrades, also called water bears, are found everywhere, and can survive extreme heat and cold, bombardment from radiation, dehydration and the pressure of being inside a vacuum. They just returned from a mission to space to see if they can live, there, too. Go bears!
