12 Unbelievable Animal Photos That Are Not Photoshopped (animal photos, amazing animal pictures) Tardigrade aka Water Bear

Miks' Pics

Tardigrade, Water Bear or Moss Piglet ~ The most extreme extremophile discovered to date. It can survive temperatures of - 459 F to 304 F, can withstand 1000 times more radiation than any other known creature, can be re-hydrated after 10 years without water and can survive in all the conditions of outer space. ~ M.S.M.

Funny and true. Electron microscope picture of a water bear, or tardigrade. Water bears are tiny invertebrates that live in aquatic and semi-aquatic habitats such as lichen and damp moss. Water bears are found throughout the world, including regions of extreme temperature, such as hot springs, and extreme pressure, such as deep underwater. They can also survive the high levels of radiation and vacuum of space.

Tardigrades are able to survive in extreme environments that would kill almost any other animal. Some can survive temperatures of close to absolute zero, or 0 Kelvin (−273 °C), temperatures as high as 151 °C, 1000 times more radiation than other animals and almost a decade without water. Since 2007 tardigrades have also returned alive from studies in which they have been exposed to the vacuum of outer space for a few days in low earth orbit... But the coolest thing about them is they look like miniature water bears. So cool in person. SCIENCE.

This tiny animal can survive basically anything, including the vacuum of space - The Washington Post | Also known as the water bear, the tardigrade is a microscopic critter (just 1.5 mm across, at most!) that can withstand just about anything. So it's no surprise that the water bear is the clear star of the American Natural History Museum's latest exhibit, "Life at the Limits."

Almost doesn't look alive

Water bears are able to survive the most extreme environments that would kill almost any other animal. They can take temperatures close to absolute zero and hotter than boiling water, withstand over 1000 times more radiation than humans, can live over a decade without water, endure six times the water pressure in the deepest ocean trench, and even survived in the vacuum of space, making them the only animals to do so.

The brilliance of an Atala butterfly. This species almost became extinct, but is now being reintroduced to the environment.

"Studies have proven that rats laugh when you tickle them. And now they cuddle tiny teddy bears. hmmmm please don't make me love rats! Amazing how 1 pic can mess with your emotions.

(Fact 5 is wrong: According to the picture, yes, Jupiter is the second largest planet, and Saturn’s density is the lightest in the entire solar system, however, the planet itself is only lighter than Jupiter and Neptune, making Saturn the 3rd heaviest planet in the solar system)
