Tardigrade (aka water bear or moss piglet); a moss-dwelling micro-animal, can survive extremes of temperature, pressure, radiation, and the vacuum of outer space and live. The name water bear comes from the way they walk, reminiscent of a bear's gait. The biggest adults may reach a body length of 1.5 mm (0.059 in), the smallest below 0.1 mm (Grain of Salt = 0.3mm. Newly hatched tardigrades may be smaller than 0.05 mm. They can live 10 years

Mantis Shrimp Smashes Clam Shell. The 10 cm-long mantis shrimp is equipped with a bright orange fist-like club that accelerates under water faster than a .22-calibre bullet. Researchers believe military body armour and vehicle and even aircraft frames could be transformed by incorporating the unique structure of the shrimp's club. In this video, a mantis shrimp destroys a clam shell with its hammer.

Organism without a brain creates external memories for navigation    The slime mold, an organism without anything that resembles a nervous system is capable of impressive feats of navigation. It can even link food sources in optimally spaced networks. Now, researchers have shown it's capable of filling its environment with indications of where it has already searched for food, allowing it to "remember" its past efforts and focus its attention on routes it hasn't explored.

Scientists say a 305 million-year-old fossil is the closest relative to "true spiders" ever discovered - but is not itself a spider. Easily pre-dating the dinosaurs the 1.5cm creature lived alongside the oldest known ancestors of modern spiders but its lineage is now extinct.
