In this episode, Randi and Nathaniel discuss the breakout star of Ant-Man and the Wasp: the tardigrade. Also known as “water bears,” tardigrades are a phylum of microscopic animal. That’s right–our hosts are really testing the “all creatures” part of the title.
Tardigrades are a microscopic animal, maxing out at .4mm in length. They were originally discovered by Johann August Ephraim Goeze in 1773; he gave the animal the delightful name “kleiner wasserbär” (little water bear). True to their name, tardigrades 1) live in water and 2) kinda look like bears if you squint a little. Join Randi and Nathaniel as they marvel over this creature, and find out if it’s great or just okay.
