Water bears, also known as water bears or moss piglets, are nicknamed “little water bear”, which is commonly known as Tardigrada. There are about 900 species recorded, many of which are worldwide distributed.

Water bears are tiny, with a minimum of 50 microns and a maximum of 1.4 millimeters. They must be seen with a microscope. The surface of the body is covered with a water film, which is used to avoid drying and breathe oxygen from the water film.

Water bears are known to be the most viable creatures on Earth. They can survive in outer space without protective measures. They can survive in the Himalaya mountains (more than 6,000 meters, found at 5546 meters), hot springs, Antarctica and the deep sea (less than 4,000 meters).
