The Weird & Wonderful Water Bear - original illustration


Shipping to United States: $10.95

These amazingly cool microscopic creatures can be found in tiny droplets of water. They have the ability to completely dry out and then come back to life when they come into contact with water again. I love the fact we share our universe with creatures like this, that challenge our thinking about how life and death work and remind us that we are still very much learning as we research and discover more and more.

One of the original illustration artworks for ‘Goldilocks and the Water Bears: The Search for Life in the Universe’ written by Dr Louisa Preston, published by Bloomsbury Sigma.
