Meet the tardigrade, the toughest animal on earth - Thomas Boothby
"Sans eau, un humain ne peut survivre qu’environ 100 heures. Mais il y existe une créature si résistante qu'elle peut s’en passer pendant des décennies. Cet animal d’1 millimètre peut survivre dans les environnements les plus chauds comme les plus froids sur la terre. Il peut même résister à des niveaux élevés de radiation.” Thomas Boothby nous présente le tardigrade, l'une des créatures les plus coriaces vivante sur la Terre.

Brrr...méfiez-vous !
