These microscopic bears can morph in extreme conditions to survive without water for several decades!
This miniscule creature trudges along on its eight tiny legs and resembles, funnily enough, a bear. The little critter can survive boiling temperatures, negative temperatures, thousands of bursts of radiation and even decades of dehydration!
Giant Microbes are excellent teaching aids as they assist students in developing an understanding of biology with a fun, hands on approach.
Not for children under three years of age as parts may dislodge and become a choking hazard.
The Waterbear is 150 x 110 x 90mm and is made of short-pile polyester plush in blue, has eight legs with blue knitted cords, polyester filling and two plastic eyes.
