This cute little guy is known as a Tardigrade or Waterbear. They are microscopic water animals that are virtually indestructible. In fact, they could survive in space. They have eight legs with claws on the end to capture their food. Completely safe to humans, our Waterbear is soft and plushy and is designed to ignite the imagination with real-world science. Our little creature measures 5 ½” x 4” x 4” which is hundreds of times larger than the real deal.
