You may not know it, but your plush Giant Isopod dreams of having a friend and that friend is this awesome plush Tardigrade.

Tardigrades, also known as “water bears” or “moss piglets,” are microscopic creatures considered to be the world’s most resilient animal. The can survive temperatures ranging from near absolute zero (−458 °F) up to 300 °F, withstand pressures 6 times greater than those found in the deepest ocean trenches or radiation hundreds of times higher than what’s lethal for humans, and even survive in the vacuum of outer space. They can also survive without food and water for over 30 years. So perhaps it’s no surprise that these awesomely tough little life forms are also ridiculously cute in plush toy form.

Plush Water Bears are currently available in tan and brown versions via Japanese online shop Village/Vanguard or Amazon.
