Waterbears are AMAZING!!! If the conditions are harsh, they will stay in a sort of hibernated state, where they even stop aging till the conditions are back to normal again!! I heard that scientists found a waterbear that was over 100 years old!! LOL!

Default Elm Disease

Elm Disease was a disease that killed almost every Elm Tree along time ago.

It turns out that Elm disease is a beetle. Here is a photo:

Dutch Elm Disease is spread by the beetle, which is called a vector, it is a fungal disease.

Fungi? So then it wouldn't be under critters!

That's really sad!!! I hope Elm trees don't become extinct! :'(

Correct, fungi, and no it would not be under critters. Elm trees are still around, I doubt they will go extinct and I think that maybe they have bred some resistance into them but am not sure.
