Extreme Life and Environments


Water bears, also known as tardigrades, are very small, segmented animals. They are known to survive under conditions that would kill most organisms – they can withstand temperatures ranging from -272 deg C to +150 deg C, they can be without water for a period of 10 years, and they are extremely resistant to radiation.
