Eight-Legged Water Bears

Tardigrades are cute, microscopic animals that live on moss and algae mats. They have the incredible ability to dehydrate themselves and roll into a cocoon-like structure called a “tun.” Scientists have experimented with these tuns and shot them into space. When the tardigrades were rehydrated, they went right back to laying eggs and reproducing as if nothing had happened. Researchers are still looking to unlock the secret of the tardigrade tun. If you loved this story or you just love microscopic animals in general, then own this tardigrade necklace today! It makes a great gift for microbiologists, geneticists, space researchers, and ecologists.
