Colossal Squid

Captain John Bennett and his crew discovered a colossal squid weighing 350 kilograms (770 pounds), and as long as a minibus, in Antarctica's remote Ross Sea. This creature, found a mile below the surface, has tentacles like fire hoses and eyes like dinner plates. It's female, and its eight arms are each well over a meter (3.3 feet) long. Its two tentacles would have been perhaps double that length if they had not been damaged. Continue reading for another video and more information.

Waterbear

Tardigrades, also known as waterbears, are water-dwelling, segmented micro-animals, with eight legs. Tardigrades are classified as extremophiles, organisms that can thrive in a physically or geochemically extreme condition that would be detrimental to most life on Earth. For example, tardigrades can withstand temperatures from just above absolute zero to well above the boiling point of water, pressures about six times greater than those found in the deepest ocean trenches, ionizing radiation at doses hundreds of times higher than the lethal dose for a human, and the vacuum of outer space. They can go without food or water for more than 10 years, drying out to the point where they are 3% or less water, only to rehydrate, forage, and reproduce. Continue reading for more.
