Cool Facts About Animals Podcast

Tardigrades/Water Bears

Tardigrades/Water Bears

On this episode, we learn about a truly resilient animal, the tardigrade (aka the cutely-named moss piglet or water bear).  This animal can survive anywhere from the moon to a volcano to your own backyard. In its tun state, it can lie dormant for decades in a sort of zombie state. Very cool.  Thank you to Abby for supporting us on Patreon!
