Erin was telling me that the “hardest” animal in existence could survive ,exposed, in the vacuum of space. Bullshit I said, the hardest animal is a pig with a flick knife and everybody knows that. Looks like I was wrong.
You’d never guess from looking at these clips that the millimeter-long
tardigrade is the world’s toughest animal, found from deep ocean to
Himalayan mountaintops, able to survive at a single degree above
Tardigrade (Water Bear)
These things are so cute that there needs to be a plushie made in their honour. I look forward to sharing their DNA soon. 😀
