Caption: Water bears (Echiniscus testudo), light microscopy. Water bears (or tardigrades) are tiny invertebrates that live in aquatic and semi-aquatic habitats such as lichen and damp moss. They are found throughout the world, including regions of extreme temperature, such as hot springs, and extreme pressure, such as deep underwater. Water bears can also survive the high levels of radiation and vacuum of space. Darkfield illumination.
