Tardigrada – The Water Monster

These animals are known as Tardigrades. They are microscopic, water-dwelling, segmented animals with eight legs and they are able to survive in extreme environments that would kill almost any other animal. It can stand temperatures of as low as -273 degrees C (-460 degrees F) and as high as 151 degrees C (303 degrees F). They are only animals known to be able to survive the vacuum of space.
