Wondering what the odd-looking creature in my logo pic is? This micro animal is called a tardigrade or water bear. It is very tiny, so small it can live inside of a dew drop. The tartdigrade is a survivor, they have been found everywhere from mountaintops to the deep-sea and from tropical rain forests to the Antarctic. Extreme heat or cold, radiation or even the vacuum of space has not killed them. They can go without food and water for 30 years, only to rehydrate, forage, and reproduce. Fossils of tardigrades have been dated at over 500 million years. I couldn’t ask for a better spirit animal.pink tartigrade
