Tardigrade or Water Bear Featured Aquatic Print

Tardigrade or Water Bear

Water bear or tardigrade. Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a water bear (Echiniscus sp., ) walking over spagnum moss. Water bears live in damp habitats such as moss or lichen and are tiny segmented invertebrates. They can survive dry conditions by changing into a dessicated state in which they can remain for many years. Whilst in this form (known as a tun) they can withstand the most extreme environments and can tolerate radiation levels as high as x1000 more than other animals, including humans. They have even been brought back alive after spending 10 days in the vacuum of space! They are classed as extremeophiles. Magnification x1120 (x275 at 10cm wide)

Water bears, SEM Featured Aquatic Print

Water bears, SEM

Water bears. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of water bears (Echiniscus testudo) in their active state. Water bears (or tardigrades) are tiny invertebrates that live in coastal waters and freshwater habitats, as well as semi-aquatic terrestrial habitats like damp moss. They require water to obtain oxygen by gas exchange. In dry conditions, they can enter a cryptobiotic tun (or barrel) state of dessication to survive. Water bears feed on plant and animal cells and are found throughout the world, from the tropics to the cold polar waters. Magnification: x270 when printed 10cm high

Megalodon shark and great white Featured Aquatic Print

Megalodon shark and great white

Megalodon shark (Carcharodon megalodon), computer artwork. A great white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) is shown below it at the same scale. This enormous shark lived between around 20 and 1.2 million years ago, and is known from fossils. It was related to the modern great white shark, and is thought to have fed on whales, as this is the only source of food that could have provided it with enough meat. Megalodon was thought to attain lengths exceeding 20 metres, and possibly significantly larger. It is thought that it died out after the seas cooled, allowing warm-blooded whales to escape the sharks for much of the year by swimming to waters too cold for them to survive in
