mini-tardigrade-01-02.pngThe tiny Tardigrades are humble and unobtrusive creatures, which have a legendary ability to withstand harsh conditions of every kind! Our Tardigrade Locket represents a member of the family Echiniscidae, as identified by the presence and the pattern of tergal plates on its back. Pull back these plates, to learn about the internal anatomy of this fascinating creature. Not only are the organs of the digestive, nervous and reproductive systems carefully rendered, but you can also see the tardigrade's muscles etched on the interior surfaces of its body. A truly unique educational keepsake!

Tardigrades (Phylum Tardigrada), also known as waterbears, are an ancient lineage whose exact relationship to other living organisms is lost in the dim mists of the pre-Cambrian past. They are found in a wide variety of ecosystems, from deep ocean trenches, to the tallest mountains, and at all latitudes! They are able to resist extreme heat and cold, dehydration, pressure, radiation, and most amazingly, the vacuum of outer space!
