They're all are right! The scientific termtardigrade or its nickname water bear and moss piglets, a mysterious critter with a unique protein that helps it survive dreadful conditions for over 10 years. They produce a protein when they dry out, experience extreme temperature conditions or are pounded with radiation that creates a glass-like wall around them. When moisture is again introduced this invertebrate is restored to a living state.
It’s an animal that lacks a backbone but over us has a lead.
Neither water or reasonable temperatures is a required need.
They can tuck their head and 8 legs underneath their skin,
And survive a decade in space as they merrily spin.
Then with only a few drops of water they can pop back to life,
And resume living happily with their husband or their wife!
