Waterbear (Tardigrade) Petri Dish

Waterbear (Tardigrade) Petri Dish under a microscope!

One of the most fascinating lifeforms on Earth is the common tardigrade – technically speaking, “slow walker.” Typically found most anywhere, waterbears love a nice patch of moss. Indeed, they are also known as “moss piglets”.

This smallest bear in the world can hibernate for decades before coming back to life! They can even survive in the vacuum of outer space!
  • More extreme and cuddly than any old teddy bear
  • Take this adorable waterbear wherever you may go
