Xylord Posted October 20, 2012 Share Posted October 20, 2012 I think I've found my new totem animal. Tartigrades. Who are they? In one sentence, they're the best guys in the living realm. In a bit more than that, they're the awesomest extremophiles of our Earth. But first, some pictures so you can imagine them a bit better. By now, you've probably noticed they're adorable and absolutely cute. But don't under-estimate those guys, they're no pandas. Indeed, they might not look like it, but on top of being so beautiful and cuddly, they're also the most HARDCORE living beings we know of. A few degrees above 0 K? No big deal. 600 K? What about it, it's still colder than their absolute epicness. 6000 atmospheres of pressure? Pfft, not even feeling it. 10000000 rads worth of radiation, or thousands of the human fatal dose? Not even started tanning! Space VACUUM? Lol, that's supposed to hurt? Oh, and have I mentioned that they live hundreds of years? No? Well, they do. This thread is for all the members of the Tartigrade International fanclub. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
