What small little creature will be hanging around after the next huge asteroid hits the earth? The mighty cockroach? Oh hell no, the survivor is likely to be the unknown Water Bears (officially Tardigrades) who are called 'nature's greatest survivors.' Water Bears will inherit the planet!

According to Mail Online, the tiny little tough creatures live for two hundred years, can survive broiling water and live frozen! There are 900 species of them and they are everywhere. The Mail Online reports they can live in temperatures that are -427 degrees or as high as 357 degrees. The ugly little ones can live for a decade without water.
