Look at this cute eight legged beast. This is the Giant Microbes Waterbear Hypsibius Dujardini and it is called a waterbear because it looks like a bear. However, I don't think it does. I think it looks more like an eight legged funny looking smurf wannabe

So, who is this little friend of ours. Well, he is a microbe that lives in water (as you may have guessed by the name). He has a few tricks up his sleeve as well. He can hibernate for decades before deciding to wake up and do something with its life. But that is not the most impressive quality this creature has. How about this, he can survive in boiling water????? Plus, he can dry himself out to 99% of its body moisture and stay a literal dry creature for decades and decades. But his amazing super powers don't stop there, he can survive a thousand times more radiation than  a human being and apparently these can survive the vacuum of outer space (not sure how they found that out to be honest).


So here you have it. The Waterbear by Giant Microbes, sweet, cuddly and a superhero amongst microbes.
