A new favorite creature: the tardigrade! This little critter is also known as a water bear. In 2008, they were the first animal demonstrated to be able to survive the vacuum of space. They are virtually indestructible and can survive being blasted with radiation, intense pressures, and years of desiccation. // #science
17 Photos Of The Tough Ass Tardigrade [17 Pics] Toughest Creature on earth: The water bear can survive being frozen, boiled, & floating in space. They live for 200 yrs. http://www.i-am-bored.com/bored_link.cfm?link_id=96691
Meet the toughest animal on the planet: The water bear that can survive being frozen or boiled, float around in space and live for 200 years. Tardigrades, strange 200 year old creatures survive in space & extreme radiation. They can survive temperatures as low as -457 degrees F, heat as high as 357 degrees F, and 5,700 grays of radiation, when 10-20 grays would kill humans and most other animals.
Water bear! Tardigrades are small, water-dwelling, segmented animals with eight legs. They can survive boiling, freezing, the vacuum of space and years of desiccation. This is why we need to be so careful of this planet. I didn't know these tiny little creatures existed. Might they be able to provide us with essential information someday? Creepy looking booger.
This tiny animal can survive basically anything, including the vacuum of space - The Washington Post | Also known as the water bear, the tardigrade is a microscopic critter (just 1.5 mm across, at most!) that can withstand just about anything. So it's no surprise that the water bear is the clear star of the American Natural History Museum's latest exhibit, "Life at the Limits."
Tardigrade aka waterbear. The tardigrade, toughest creature on earth. Only about 1mm, the tardigrade, or waterbear, can survive temps near absolute zero (-459 degrees F), as high as 304 degrees F, 1000 times more radiation than other animals, and almost a decade without water. They can withstand the extreme vacuum of space, as well as 1200 times atmospheric pressure.
A new favorite creature in space + everyplace- Tardigrade! 'This little critter is known as a water bear or a #Tardigrade. In 2008 they were the first #animal demonstrated to be able to survive the vacuum of space. They are virtually indestructible survive being blasted w radiation, intense pressures & years of desiccation. Specimens were launched into #space by Swedish scientists & they returned unharmed after 8 days. #waterbear
Tardigrades are able to survive in extreme environments that would kill almost any other animal. Some can survive temperatures of close to absolute zero, or 0 Kelvin (−273 °C), temperatures as high as 151 °C, 1000 times more radiation than other animals and almost a decade without water. Since 2007 tardigrades have also returned alive from studies in which they have been exposed to the vacuum of outer space for a few days in low earth orbit... But the coolest thing about them is they look like miniature water bears. So cool in person. SCIENCE.

However well cared for, animals should not live in captivity (a zoo). It is never possible to mimic a wild animals natural habitat. Take this polar bear, in the wild it walks about 20 miles a day and/or swims 30. Can you imagine how many circles that is in it's swimmingpool?

This reminds me of the photos on the wall in the Auckland War Memorial Museum in New Zealand. The exhibit was beautiful!

“I bet you could catch bullets,” she said, and threw the stick away. “How do you do that?” “By not being human,” he said. “That’s why you could never trick a bear. We see tricks and deceit as plain as arms and legs. We can see in a way humans have forgotten. But you know about this; you can understand the symbol reader.” ~Philip Pullman The three tree автор Lauri Tammik на 500px

The binturong (Arctictis binturong), also known as Palawin or Asian bearcat, is a viverrid found in South and Southeast Asia. It is uncommon or rare over much of its range and listed as Vulnerable by IUCN because of a population decline estimated to be more than 30% over the last 30 years because Binturongs live tall forests in Asia, and they're being cut down.

Planktonology - White Sea drifting creatures. In May there are many very small but fantastically interesting and unique organisms in the cold waters of the White Sea. Some of them are so small and transparent, that you can see them only with powerful lights and with trained eye. This project is a small drop in the ocean of planktonic life forms. It's our Another universe.
