Tardigrade or Water Bear
Water bear or tardigrade. Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a water bear (Echiniscus sp., ) walking over spagnum moss. Water bears live in damp habitats such as moss or lichen and are tiny segmented invertebrates. They can survive dry conditions by changing into a dessicated state in which they can remain for many years. Whilst in this form (known as a tun) they can withstand the most extreme environments and can tolerate radiation levels as high as x1000 more than other animals, including humans. They have even been brought back alive after spending 10 days in the vacuum of space! They are classed as extremeophiles. Magnification x1120 (x275 at 10cm wide).

False colour SEM of moss leaves; green
False-colour scanning electron micrograph of a vegetative shoot of the moss Physcomitrella patens. The leaves of mosses are very simple compared with those of higher plants, usually being one cell thick as seen here; most of the cells contain chloroplasts. They do have mid-ribs and conducting strands. This moss is easy to culture. The plants are macerated, and when placed on a suitable medium many of the fragments will regenerate into whole plants. Magnification: x20 at 6x4.5cm size.
