Hey guys and gals! We FIND and PROMOTE people's work, we never take credit for things we haven't written, we just love sharing the things that are interesting, but if you don't want your work or pictures shown, please let me know and I'll take it off, we're not trying to harm any one here or infringe on anyone's copyrights, just late night entertainment for my friends and I after a long days of work.

We're not making money off the site, nor are we publishing anything to other places through feedburner claiming that it's our work, just a hobby of finding cool things around the internet, that's all. Sometimes we copy and paste too quickly and a link giving you credit doesn't appear, if that's the case and you DO want your work promoted, we will add in the backlink, we would love to give credit where credit is due!

Please contact me or drop a comment on any posts you guys don't want up and I'll take it off within 24 hours, thanks!

SciFun.info - Water bears - Incredible animals!

ardigrades (commonly known as water bears) form the phylum Tardigrada, part of the superphylum Ecdysozoa are microscopic, water-dwelling, segmented animals with eight legs.

The name Tardigrada means "slow walker". The biggest adults may reach a body length of 1.5 mm, the smallest below 0.1 mm. Freshly hatched larvae may be smaller than 0.05 mm.



Tardigrades occur over the entire world, from the high Himalayas (above 6,000 m), to the deep sea (below 4,000 m) and from the polar regions to the equator.


Tardigrades are able to survive in extreme environments that would kill almost any other animal.



Some can survive temperatures close to absolute zero, 1,000 times more radiation than any other animal, nearly a decade without water, and even the vacuum of space.
