This video shows how the little “water bears” walk | Digital Trends Spanish

New research has shown that tardigrades are good walkers, despite their small size and soft anatomy. These microscopic extremophiles were called "little water bears" when they were discovered in 1773. They are capable of withstanding a great deal of stress, such as freezing temperatures, intense radiation, and dehydration. An investigation published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences demonstrates that these agencies have "an exceptionally versatile set of locomotive tools." In fact, until recently it was believed that to move, they had to shake or slide, but now a video shows how efficient they are walking. One of the interesting things about this find is that, like other mocroscopic creatures, tardigrades are also soft-bodied, thus lacking an internal or external skelet...
