Script: David-Talent: When we think of toughness, we often think of things such as diamonds, superheros, kevlar, or that cool kid at school that stands up to the bully. Talent: Well, let me give you the option to take one of these tough things or people and put them into one of these scenarios. Being stranded in outer space, being pinned at the bottom of the ocean, or being stuck somewhere in Antarctica. Talent: More likely than not, that thing you thought of would have not been able to survive, Why? A lot of animals or things just don't have the ability to regulate their bodies in those extreme conditions. But there is a creature that we know of that does. A tardigrade. Talent: Tardigrades, also known as water bears, were discovered by Johann August Ephraim Goeze in 1773. These creatures are so small that you need to use a microscope to be able to see them. You’d think a creature this small couldn’t survive these extreme conditions, but they defy all the odds! The key to water bears survival is their ability to go into a cryptobiosis state. Talent: Cryptobiosis is when organisms enter an ametabolic state of life, a state when all metabolic processes in the body stop in response to very extreme conditions. In a nutshell, these guys just sleep off their problems. Wish I could sleep off my mid terms Talent: There are five states of cryptobiosis: anhydrobiosis, anoxybiosis, chemobiosis, cryobiosis, and osmobiosis. Talent: Depending on the situation, Tardigrades will undergo one of these states. Let's take a look at a few scenarios that tardigrades are able to survive like extremes temperatures and deep space. David-Talent: So we humans aren't very good at taking in radiation and toxins. Anything more than 10 radiation dosage and we go kapoot *talent makes cut throat sign using hands*. However, Tardigrades can withstand up to 6,200 dosages of radiation. They do this by entering chemobiosis. Talent- What ends up happening is they stop metabolizing any reactions in their bodies which stops processes such as reproduction, repair, and development. The halt in the development aspect is key because if the toxins are unable chemically start any reactions there will be no harm done. Talent: Similarly, Tardigrades are able to survive in space and extreme temperatures through the process of anhydrobiosis. Anhydrobiosis is a process in which the tardigrade enters a desiccated state where all its cell membranes and cell structures are completely stabilized. Talent- One of the leading hypothesis as to how they are able to do this is the water-replacement theory. It states that tardigrades will actually make all the accumulated proteins and non-reducing sugars, such as trehalose, interact through hydrogen bonding to replace water. This process is also applicable in states of extreme temperature and dehydration. Talent: These tardigrades may be small, but they are as tough as…? I guess there's really nothing tougher than a tardigrade! What did you think the toughest creature was before watching this video? Let us know in the comments below!

A tardigrade is one of the smallest animals. It can grow only about 1 millimeter or less in length. However, scientists say that tardigrades can survive in extremely inhospitable environments. Do you know how? When the environment is inhospitable, the tardigrades enter a state called cryptobiosis. In cryptobiosis, they curl up into a ball like structure called tun. All their metabolic processes almost stop. In this state, tardigrades can survive in about minus 459 degrees Fahrenheit and even in about 300 degrees Fahrenheit. They can live deep in the oceans and withstand the huge pressure of water. They can even survive in the vacuum of space and can withstand radiation. Later, when the conditions are stable, they again come back to their normal form.

10 Immortal Animals You Won't Believe Are Real | Interesting Facts ► Subscribe: https://goo.gl/gYLyzW Believe It Or Not – Surely All These Animals Greatly Outlive You We know the life cycle; an animal is born, grows up, becomes an adult, reproduces, ages, gets old and finally dies. This is a universal truth about animal life on earth. Aging is a natural process for all living beings. In biology, it called senescence. Birth slowly becomes death by way of aging (if not by accident, disease or falling prey) in a natural life process. Therefore, it is hard to believe that some animals are almost immortal. There are a few species of animals in which the process of aging is extremely slow. Their life span is much longer in comparison to that of a human being. This is termed as “negligible senescence”. Here the symptoms of aging are so faint that it seems like they can never die. Tortoise As children, all of us might have heard or read about the tortoise’s immortality. The life span of a tortoise is 150 to 250 years. A tortoise shell contrary to common belief actually has 60 different interconnected bones. Red Sea Urchin Sea urchins usually live in warm waters close to the coral reefs or on the rocky bottom. Their life spans up to 200 years. They never stop growing but don’t get old. Their mouth has five sharp teeth and they can drill a hole in a rock. Sea urchins originated roughly 450 million years ago. Rougheye Rockfish Rougheye rockfish are probably one of the longest living marine fish, living as long as 200 years. “Red Snapper”, which you can sometimes find on restaurant menus, are actually rockfish. They do not lay eggs but give birth to young ones. Rockfish have a bladder that adjusts to their buoyancy as per depth levels inside the sea. Carp Koi Carp Koi have a lifespan of over 200 years. Koi fish represent love and friendship in Japanese culture. As a gift, they are believed to bring good luck; so traditionally they are handed over from one generation to the next in Japanese families. Koi have no stomach, instead, they only have a gut. Bowhead Whale They are believed to live up to 200 years. The Bowhead whale can grow up to a length of 66 ft. and weigh as much as 100 tons. Bowhead whales were massively hunted for their meat and oil. A bowhead whale can blow air up to 20 feet in height and are strong enough to easily break a one-foot thick ice layer. Ocean Quahog World’s oldest ocean quahog was 507 years old before its death in 2006. They are able to live for centuries because of their very slow metabolism. This ocean quahog was named after Chinese dynasty “Ming”. Freshwater Pearl Mussel Freshwater pearl mussels possess negligible senescence. They have a life span of 210–250 years. Freshwater mussel species have the ability to create a pearl. Antarctic Sponge The Antarctic sponge has an extremely slow growth rate because of the very low temperature there; some of the oldest known specimens are as old as 1550 years. Sponges have been inhabiting earth for the last 600 million years. Turritopsis Dohrn jellyfish This jellyfish discovered in 1883 can truly be called immortal because of its unique regenerative powers which came to our knowledge only two decades back. Its cells can transform into different kinds of cells like a muscle cell can change into a sperm cell or even an egg cell or vice versa. Water Bear Water bears, also known as tardigrades or moss piglet have existed for 530 million years. They have some super powers which make them virtually immortal. They can stop all their metabolic activities completely by a process called cryptobiosis. Water bears do not grow by cell division. Their cells just expand to a bigger size.

Doubtless, tardigrades (a.k.a. water bears) are one of the most amazing animals on our planet. This particular individual is just about 200 microns long and we found it after scrutinizing some moss samples using a cheap department store microscope. And as all tardigrads are extremophiles, believe it or not, these tiny animals are immortal. Well, sort of. Actually, you can't kill them by freezing or cooking - they can survive both near absolute zero and boiling water temperatures. They also can stand with equal ease the lack of atmosphere of the outer space, the monstrous pressure of the deepest ocean floor and the deadly cosmic radiation. And as a bonus, they can go without food or water for more than 10 years. And all this thanks to their amazing ability to get into anabiosis. Some even believe, that tardigrades are out of this world, literally. Endowed with such a range of supernatural abilities, they may be able to survive an interstellar voyage. So, aren't they tardi-GREAT?

World’s toughest animals! From invincible tardigrades (water bears) to immortal creatures, here are the strongest species discovered on planet Earth. They survive most environments! Subscribe for new videos: http://goo.gl/SaufF4 Follow us on Instagram: @theywillkillyou Voiceover by Rodney Tompkins: https://www.youtube.com/c/BigBadada2012 7: The Snow Leopard A species of large cat, also known as Panthera Uncia, the snow leopard lives in the high, rugged mountains of South & Central Asia, in areas ranging from Afghanistan to Kazakhstan & Russia in the north to India & China in the east. They inhabit rocky outcrops & ravines & steep cliff areas at altitudes of 9,800-17,000 ft. These strong felines are perfectly adapted to the rough environment they inhabit. The snow leopard is primarily known for its beautiful thick fur with a white, grey or soft-yellowish coat & ringed spots of black on brown. This pattern acts as a camouflage for their prey, which mainly consists of wild goats & sheep. 6: The Komodo Dragon With an average length of 8 to 9 feet & weighing up to 200 pounds, Komodo dragons are the largest living lizards in the world. They have flat heads, bowed legs & long, thick tails. They are armed with long claws & their rough & durable skins are reinforced with bony plates called osteoderms. These animals have several features that make them impressive predators. According to the Smithsonian Zoo, the Komodo Dragon’s keen sense of sight enables it to see objects located at distances of more than 985 feet away. However, this gigantic lizard primarily relies on its sense of smell to detect food. Using its forked tongue, it samples the air. 5: The Dung Beetle Despite usually being only around an inch long the dung beetle is capable of some extraordinary feats. When considering the strength-to-bodyweight ratio, the dung beetle is the strongest living creature on Earth. The Taurus Scarab is a species of dung beetle where the male can pull objects that weigh up to 1,141 times its own body weight. That is the equivalent of an average-sized human being pulling weights of over 80 tons. Dung beetles may be found on every continent around the world with the exception of Antarctica. As their name indicates they primarily feed on animal excrement. 4: The Saltwater Crocodile The largest of all known living reptiles, the saltwater crocodile, is a hyper-carnivorous apex predator with a broad distribution around the world. They may be found in areas ranging from India’s eastern coast, throughout Southeast Asia & the north of Australia. They mainly inhabit rivers, marshes & lakes but they have been known to travel long distances at sea, due to the fact that they are excellent swimmers. Male Saltwater crocodiles can reach up to 23 feet in length while weighing almost 2,600 pounds. They have one of the most powerful bites in the animal kingdom reportedly being able to generate a force of 7,700 pounds per square inch. 3: The Wolverine Even though wolverines are the largest members of the Mustelidae family, their proportions rarely exceed those of a medium-sized dog. However, wolverines are remarkably strong & ferocious. They may be found in the subarctic & alpine tundra & boreal forests of the Northern Hemisphere, in the US state of Alaska, northern Canada, in the west of Russia, Siberia & mainland Nordic countries in Europe. They are known primarily as scavengers, their stocky & muscular bodies, strong jaws & sharp, crampon-like claws also make them versatile & powerful predators. There have been documented instances where wolverines have taken down prey larger than themselves. 2: The Honey Badger Honey badgers have been described as the most fearless creatures in the world. They are the largest species of terrestrial mustelids in Africa. They may also be found in Southwest Asia or in the Indian subcontinent. Adult males typically measure around 27 to 42 inches from head to tail with a shoulder height of 9 to 11 inches & weigh from 20 to 35 pounds. The sides of their lower bodies & heads are pure black & their upper bodies are covered by a large white band that goes from the tops of their heads to the base of the tail. Primarily a carnivorous species, the honey badger does not have many natural predators. 1: Tardigrades Also known as the water bear or the space bear, the Tardigrade is widely considered to be the most resilient animal on Earth, able to survive in outer space. It is an almost microscopic creature, usually less than one millimeter in size, with a scrunched-up head & a plump, long body. It has eight legs & four to eight claws on each of its hands. Water bears mainly survive by eating fluids & sucking the juices out of moss, lichens & algae. According to the BBC, some Tardigrade species are carnivorous & even cannibalistic. What makes the water bear nearly indestructible is its ability to survive in almost any habitat. They typically prefer to live on moist pieces of moss.

Arctic Ground Squirrel Arctic ground squirrels are native to regions in Northern Canada, Alaska, and Siberia… where they live on the mountain slopes, shores, and river flats of the tundra. It's such an unforgiving environment, that the squirrels have developed unique adaptations to survive… one of which is their ability to hibernate in sub-zero conditions. 9. Red Flat Bark Beetle Red Flat Bark Beetles are a species of beetle found exclusively in the Arctic regions of Canada and Alaska. Small insects have two choices when the harsh winters close in- either give in to the cold, or get through it by either tolerating the ice or filling their bodies with antifreeze compounds. It was long thought that the Red Flak Bark Beetles did the latter, where they lose as much as 40 percent of their body water and replace it with the antifreeze proteins to prevent ice forming… which would otherwise destroy their cells. 8. Painted Turtles Different species of turtles deal with cold temperatures in their own ways, but the Painted turtles are undoubtedly the hardiest of them all! They live across North America in ponds and slow-moving freshwater and have to be prepared for ice sheets to cover them, with nowhere to go. Luckily for the painted turtles, they have a number of tricks to help them survive. 7. European Crucian Carp Each winter, as the lakes of northern Europe freeze over, the European Crucian Carps get trapped in the water beneath. At first, it seems that, once the ice thaws, the fish continue on with their lives as normal… but things are more complicated here than they look.. 6. Arctic Woolly Bear Caterpillar While Arctic Woolly bear moths have similar lives to other moths, their caterpillars are an entirely different story. They live in the far north of the Arctic across Canada and Greenland, where they are exposed to freezing temperatures for most of the year. The caterpillars take around 7 years to collect enough nutrients to be able to transform into a moth, so they need the ability to withstand the cold to be able to do this. 5. Iguanas We usually associate Iguanas with warmer weather, but as cold-blooded animals, they're also very capable of dealing with colder temperatures. When it gets colder than -40 degrees Fahrenheit, their bodies freeze and they become immobilized. This causes unusual situations where, if the unfortunate iguana is in a tree at the time, it simply falls to the ground- seemingly. This happens a lot in places like Florida, where there are lots of Iguanas and, occasionally, temperatures can plunge. 4. Upis Beetles Upis beetles live in the same regions as the red flat bark beetles but have developed an entirely different way of enduring freezing temperatures to ensure that they'll still be alive for the thaw that comes in springtime. 3. Alligators Alligators can be found in watery regions around the world, but have to return to the surface periodically to breathe air to survive. This can prove to be difficult when temperatures plummet, though, because the ice that forms on top of lakes and rivers creates a physical barrier that prevents alligators from being able to breathe. 2. Tardigrades Tardigrades are one of the hardiest types of creature on the planet, and cold temperatures seem to pose no problem to them whatsoever. Also known as water bears, they are water-dwelling organisms that measure up to one twenty-fifth of an inch long, and they are known for their ability to survive deep depths and even the vacuum of space. 1. Nematodes Nematodes are tiny worms, no longer than 1 mm, and have been seen to make wild adaptations depending on the environment they’re in. They can develop different mouths to adapt to the food that’s available, some have adapted to high temperatures, they are the deepest multicellular organism to have ever been found, and some have even adapted to be able to live inside the intestines of slugs.

They are also the only life form known to be able to survive the near vacuum of space for extended periods. (Note: humans can actually survive the near vacuum of space for about 90 seconds without long term damage, but we have nothing on this creature.) They can lie dormant for 10-100 years and then come back to life with a drop of water. When it comes to durability, nothing on Earth can match the very real "Water Bear"- a tiny creature the size of a grain of sand (averaging about a millimeter long) that is lauded as the toughest creature on planet Earth. There are over 1000 known species of Water Bears (called such because when they walk, their gait loosely resembles plump little bears ambling along on eight legs). Also known as "tardigrades" (from the Latin "tardigradus" meaning 'slow walker'), they thrive in the most extreme environments on every corner of the Earth- from the Equator to the Polar regions- forests, swamps, deserts, tundras, mountains, glaciers, hot springs- from the highest point on Earth along the Himalayan mountain range, to the deepest parts of the sea, tardigrades are there. Less excitingly, they can also be found in your backyard where you can usually find them in common moss, lichens and ferns, feeding on natural detritus in the undergrowth. Although the scientific community has long known about tardigrades (since 1773), it is still somewhat of a mystery how they manage the amazing feat of cryptobiosis, that is, the ability to almost completely halt their metabolic processes, losing up to 97%-99% of their total moisture. When they then encounter water again, they reanimate, with the current record being 120 years to reanimation (though that particular creature simply moved a little and then died when reanimated. But when we go to spans such as 10 years, most tardigrades are able to fully reanimate with no problem.) One of the keys to this hardy creature's success seems to be the presence of a cellular sugar called trehalose which preserves the membranes that form their bodies. Although hardly the answer to human suspended animation, scientists are looking at trehalose as a viable way to preserve human eggs during freezing for later fertilization. In any event, when tardigrades dry up, they become "tuns", little capsules that are easily transported and dispersed over the Earth via the wind, the oceans, or in an animal's gut. (Yes, they can sometimes survive there too.) Besides their dehydration abilities, these little creatures can also go without oxygen for a time and withstand temperatures ranging from well above water's boiling point to nearly absolute zero. (They've been shown to be able to survive as low as 1 degree above absolute zero for several minutes.) Not remarkable enough for you? Tardigrades can also survive as high as 5,000 grays or 500,000 rads of ionizing radiation, though above 100,000 rads does seem to make them sterile. For reference, humans die around a "mere" 1,000-2,000 rads and will suffer significant damage with much less. In order to test some of the tardigrade's amazing abilities, in 2007, the European Space Agency launched the FOTON-M3 spacecraft hurtling a capsule full of science experiments into the heavens. Its subjects included live tardigrades, who returned from space after orbiting Earth for 12 days, all the while being subjected to the near vacuum of space and the full spectra of deadly solar and cosmic radiation. How did the Water Bears hold up? No problem for a large percentage of them. About 68% of them were just fine and kept on amblin' once back on Earth. For reference, besides surviving the near vacuum of space, some species of tardigrade can also withstand up to 6,000 times atmospheric pressure at sea level. This is about 6 times more pressure than at the deepest point in the ocean. I, for one, welcome our new tardigrade overlords. From www.todayifoundout.com.

Right? They can do all sorts of strange, fascinating things. Some even have super powers – extraordinary abilities that sound like something out of a comic book. First, there’s the seemingly innocent wood frog, or Rana sylvatica. Pretty boring, huh? Most of its days are spent doing, you know, frog stuff like jumping & climbing. Nothing to see here. Until, that is, the first sign of freeze. Then they become the Rip Van Winkles of amphibians. As soon as they feel serious cold, they freeze. Literally. The water in their bodies turns to ice, while the syrup-like liquid inside their cells remains viscous. A wood frog seems dead: no organ function, no breath. But to paraphrase The Princess Bride, this frog is only mostly dead. Once spring comes, it springs to life, no harm done. Then there are water bears. Don’t let the cutesy name fool you. Also called Tardigrades, these guys are the opposite of cuddly. See that? Good thing they’re microscopic. They can adapt to the craziest environments on (and off) the planet. We’re talking pressures more than six times that of the deepest ocean and water temperatures of 300 degrees F. They can even survive in space. This super power, cryptobiosis, allows a water bear to dehydrate and live for years. Once you add water, boom: Back in action. Kind of like a sea monkey. But do water bears learn anything? The planarian certainly does. This flatworm lives in water around the globe, and it has super memory. If you cut off any part of a planarian, each part can regenerate into a new worm. But that’s not all. One study "taught" a planarian to be attracted to light. Researchers guillotined it and waited for a new head to grow back. The worm with a new head and brain kept the attraction to light, meaning the new brain had old memories. It’s a real-life version of the Jamie Madrox, the Multiple Man from Marvel comics. Then there’s the naked mole rat, or Heterocephalus glaber. This creature hides amazing abilities under its wrinkly skin. Science magazine named it Vertebrate of the Year in 2013. Why? Well, it seems to be immune to cancer. Mole rats have a heavy form of the substance hyaluronon between tissues that impedes tumors, which may partially explain why they can live up to 30 years. Last but not least, we’ve got the mimic octopus, or Thaumoctopus mimicus: a shape-shifter, like Mystique in the X-men films. Many members of the octopus family change colors or skin texture. But the mimic takes this a step further and actually impersonates other animals, from sea snakes to lionfish. Researchers believe that the mimic decides which animals are most suitable to imitate at any given time based on the threat. And that’s just scratching the surface.

Tardigrade The tardigrade, also known as the water bear is nearly indestructible. Discovered in the late 1700s, this strange microscopic creature is an eight legged, clawed animal found around the world, even in the frozen tundra of Antarctica. Cited as the most resilient creature that exists, this little micro-animal can survive everything from above boiling temperatures to even the cruel conditions of outer space. Intense pressure and radiation aren't even enough to take down this little guy. They can survive thanks to a host of interesting adaptations, including a protein that shields radiation damage to DNA. Even more fascinating is that researchers were able to transfer this protein to human cells and it was able to prevent x-ray damage to DNA by up to 40%! The Tardigrade is able enter a state called Cryptobiosis in which metabolic processes stop. It is a state similar to death whenever conditions become too intense to overcome. This amazing creature feeds on plant and animal cell fluid as well as the fluid of some bacteria and is can be found in many patches of moss around the world. 9. “Hoff” Crab When it isn´t scuttling in slow-motion across the beach, the ´Hoff´crab finds its home deep in the thermal vents in between South America and Antarctica. It is named after famous Baywatch and Knight Rider star David Hasselhoff, due to the crabs unusually hairy chest. Despite being in one of the coldest locations on Earth, the ocean depths near Antarctica, the noble ´Hoff´crab has to endure scorching temperatures at over 300°C (570°F). This is because the thermal vents that they call home are actually the product of undersea volcanos and they heat the ocean and release chemicals into the water that the crab has to endure. It does this because it is not the only creature to survive these conditions, the volcanic gases are a breeding ground for bacteria. The ´Hoff´will trap these bacteria within it´s hairy chest for a tasty treat. Though called the ´Hoff´crab these animals are actually a type of squat lobster and were only recently discovered but already seem to have the support of their namesake who tweeted several references to the hairy, antarctic creatures. 8. Elephant Seal The aptly named Elephant Seal braces the sub-zero antarctic conditions as the resident heavyweight. As one of the largest carnivores alive today, the elephant seal can weigh close to 9000 pounds! They are easily recognized as males have a trunk-like nose that is used for various calls. Often living in close proximity to penguin colonies, the elephant seal is a territorial animal and males often fight each other for the right to mate with females. Often this will lead males to go long periods of time without eating as they remain on their territory to protect it from others. Known for being one of the seals species that spend the most time on land, the elephant seal can spend weeks without entering the water. Their huge bodies provide lots of blubber which can be used to keep warm and provide nourishment when food conditions are low. Though intimidating, they are still prey to the well coordinated orcas that patrol the Antarctic waters. 7. Sea Pig The noble sea pig is a close relative of the sea cucumber. This little guy is pudgy and pink just like his land counterpart. The sea pig however is just a little smaller at under six inches long on average, but it makes up for it in numbers. In fact, sea pigs make up a majority of the weight on many ocean floors including many parts of Antarctica. Being one of the few creatures that can survive the intense pressure of the ocean above, the sea pig has a soft body with inflatable limbs that help it maneuver the sea bed. These animals feed on leftover remnants of living creatures that have fallen into their home and hundreds will often gather around the husk of a dead whale that falls from above. Though they gather in large numbers they are not known to be social animals with each one simply sensing food along the ocean floor. Interestingly they will all face the same direction, though scientists are still unsure as to why.

If we consume a lot of sugar, then it can lead to serious health problems. For example, a hormone called leptin tells our brain when to stop eating. However, consuming excess fructose which is a type of sugar can cause leptin resistance, a condition in which our brain does not respond to leptin. Hence, we overeat, resulting in obesity. Moreover, excess sugar is converted into a type of fat called triglycerides. Triglycerides can enter the bloodstream and form fatty deposits or plaques in blood vessels, increasing the risk of heart attack, stroke, etc. Excess sugar can even bind to collagen and elastin in our skin, damaging them and thus, making our skin saggy and wrinkly. Studies have also shown that women who have one or more sugary drinks per day are more likely to develop diabetes. Also, don't forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel.

Meet the tough, tubby tardigrades also known as ‘water bears’ or ‘moss piglets’. These nicknames may not strike fear into the hearts of many but these little plump, eight-legged micro-animals have some truly special abilities that makes them worthy contenders for the world’s hardiest animal. Fact #01 – Their scientific name Tardigrada literally means “slow stepper” They were first discovered by the German zoologist Johann August Ephraim Goeze in 1773 who initially dubbed them Kleiner Wasserbär, meaning "little water bear” based on the endearing way they trundle across their chosen habitat. Three years later the term Tardigrada (meaning "slow stepper") was first coined by the Italian biologist Lazzaro Spallanzani. Fact #02 – They have survived all five mass extinction events Yes, they have survived the Ordovician–Silurian extinction events, the Late Devonian extinction, the Permian–Triassic extinction event, the Triassic–Jurassic extinction event and the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event. Tardigrades now form a group of 1,150 species which belong to the phylum Tardigrada, part of the superphylum Ecdysozoa. It is an ancient group, with fossils dating from 530 million years ago, in the Cambrian period when the first complex animals were just evolving. Dinosaurs, in comparison, first appeared about 230 million years ago, making T. rex and co. the relative new kids on the block. Fact #03 – They can survive temperatures above 150°C and below -200°C In the 1920s, a Benedictine friar named Gilbert Franz Rahm brought tardigrades back to life after heating them to 151 °C for 15 minutes. The most heat-tolerant organisms known are bacteria that live around the edges of hydrothermal vents in the deep sea. They can still grow at 122 °C. If Rahm is to be believed, tardigrades can survive even higher temperatures. Rahm also tested them in the cold. He immersed them in liquid air at -200 °C for 21 months, in liquid nitrogen at -253 °C for 26 hours, and in liquid helium at -272 °C for 8 hours. Afterwards the tardigrades sprang back to life as soon as they came into contact with water. To put that into perspective, the lowest temperature ever recorded on Earth was a balmy -89.2 °C in central Antarctica in 1983. The tardigrades coped with a profound chill that at which atoms come to a virtual standstill. Fact #04 – They can reach a state of suspended animation by dropping metabolism, expelling water and forming a ‘tun’ What makes tardigrades so tough? One word: cryptobiosis. Translated literally, cryptobiosis means “hidden life,” and that’s exactly what it is: a form of suspended animation in which organisms can go on living even as they look dead. To reach this state they reach an advanced state of desiccation by dropping their water content can drop to 1-3 percent of normal and curling into a dehydrated ball, called a tun, by retracting their head and legs. While in cryptobiosis, tardigrades' metabolic activity gets as low as 0.01 percent of normal levels, and their organs are protected by a sugary gel called trehalose. This sugar forms a glass-like state inside their cells that stabilises key components, such as proteins and membranes, which would otherwise be destroyed. New research has found that some tardigrades use a class of proteins called intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) which also form protective glass-like solids. Fact #005 – In September 2007, researcher launched two species of dehydrated tardigrades into space. After 10 days in orbit, most of the specimens in one species were revived within 30 minutes of being rehydrated. Back in September of 2007, researchers from Sweden’s Kristianstad University launched two species of dehydrated tardigrades aboard ESA’s FOTON-M3, an unmanned mission that carried varieties of experimental payload. After ten days of orbiting, the FOTON-M3 satellite made its way safely to the Earth. The scientists found that majority of the specimens in one species (around 68 percent) were successfully revived after just 30 minutes of being rehydrated. These specimens even went on to hatch their eggs. Water bear don’t care. Website: http://www.marinescoop.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/themarinesco...

10 Immortal Animals You Won't Believe Are Real | Interesting Facts ► Subscribe: For copyright matters please contact us at: [email protected] Believe It Or Not – Surely All These Animals Greatly Outlive You We know the life cycle; an animal is born, grows up, becomes an adult, reproduces, ages, gets old and finally dies. This is a universal truth about animal life on earth. Aging is a natural process for all living beings. In biology, it called senescence. Birth slowly becomes death by way of aging (if not by accident, disease or falling prey) in a natural life process. Therefore, it is hard to believe that some animals are almost immortal. There are a few species of animals in which the process of aging is extremely slow. Their life span is much longer in comparison to that of a human being. This is termed as “negligible senescence”. Here the symptoms of aging are so faint that it seems like they can never die. Tortoise As children, all of us might have heard or read about the tortoise’s immortality. The life span of a tortoise is 150 to 250 years. A tortoise shell contrary to common belief actually has 60 different interconnected bones. Red Sea Urchin Sea urchins usually live in warm waters close to the coral reefs or on the rocky bottom. Their life spans up to 200 years. They never stop growing but don’t get old. Their mouth has five sharp teeth and they can drill a hole in a rock. Sea urchins originated roughly 450 million years ago. Rougheye Rockfish Rougheye rockfish are probably one of the longest living marine fish, living as long as 200 years. “Red Snapper”, which you can sometimes find on restaurant menus, are actually rockfish. They do not lay eggs but give birth to young ones. Rockfish have a bladder that adjusts to their buoyancy as per depth levels inside the sea. Carp Koi Carp Koi have a lifespan of over 200 years. Koi fish represent love and friendship in Japanese culture. As a gift, they are believed to bring good luck; so traditionally they are handed over from one generation to the next in Japanese families. Koi have no stomach, instead, they only have a gut. Bowhead Whale They are believed to live up to 200 years. The Bowhead whale can grow up to a length of 66 ft. and weigh as much as 100 tons. Bowhead whales were massively hunted for their meat and oil. A bowhead whale can blow air up to 20 feet in height and are strong enough to easily break a one-foot thick ice layer. Ocean Quahog World’s oldest ocean quahog was 507 years old before its death in 2006. They are able to live for centuries because of their very slow metabolism. This ocean quahog was named after Chinese dynasty “Ming”. Freshwater Pearl Mussel Freshwater pearl mussels possess negligible senescence. They have a life span of 210–250 years. Freshwater mussel species have the ability to create a pearl. Antarctic Sponge The Antarctic sponge has an extremely slow growth rate because of the very low temperature there; some of the oldest known specimens are as old as 1550 years. Sponges have been inhabiting earth for the last 600 million years. Turritopsis Dohrn jellyfish This jellyfish discovered in 1883 can truly be called immortal because of its unique regenerative powers which came to our knowledge only two decades back. Its cells can transform into different kinds of cells like a muscle cell can change into a sperm cell or even an egg cell or vice versa. Water Bear Water bears, also known as tardigrades or moss piglet have existed for 530 million years. They have some super powers which make them virtually immortal. They can stop all their metabolic activities completely by a process called cryptobiosis. Water bears do not grow by cell division. Their cells just expand to a bigger size.
TARDIGRADES ( also known as Water Bears or Moss Piglets ) are water-dwelling, eight-legged, segmented micro-animals. Notable for being perhaps the most durable known organisms; able to survive extreme conditions that would be rapidly fatal to nearly all other known life forms. They can withstand temperatures from just above absolute zero to well above the boiling point of water (100 °C), pressures about six times greater than those found in the deepest ocean trenches, ionizing radiation at doses hundreds of times higher than the lethal dose for a human, and the vacuum of outer space. They can go without food or water for more than 10 years, drying out to the point where they are 3% or less water, only to rehydrate, forage, and reproduce. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tardigrade

The nematodes or roundworms constitute the phylum Nematoda. They are a diverse animal phylum inhabiting a broad range of environments. Nematode species can be difficult to distinguish, and although over 25,000 have been described, of which more than half are parasitic, the total number of nematode species has been estimated to be about 1 million. Nematodes are classified along with insects and other moulting animals in the clade Ecdysozoa, and, unlike flatworms, have tubular digestive systems with openings at both ends. Nematodes have successfully adapted to nearly every ecosystem from marine (salt water) to fresh water, to soils, and from the polar regions to the tropics, as well as the highest to the lowest of elevations. They are ubiquitous in freshwater, marine, and terrestrial environments, where they often outnumber other animals in both individual and species counts, and are found in locations as diverse as mountains, deserts and oceanic trenches. They are found in every part of the earth's lithosphere, even at great depths (0.9–3.6 km) below the surface of the Earth in gold mines in South Africa. They represent 90% of all animals on the ocean floor. Their numerical dominance, often exceeding a million individuals per square meter and accounting for about 80% of all individual animals on earth, their diversity of life cycles, and their presence at various trophic levels point at an important role in many ecosystems. The many parasitic forms include pathogens in most plants and animals (including humans). Some nematodes can undergo cryptobiosis.

HEY FRIENDS! Here is AJOB KOTHA's new content where you come to know about : বিজ্ঞানীদের মতে এই প্রাণীটা অন্য গ্রহের ।। ODVUT এই প্রাণী যা কখনই এই দুনিয়ার হতে পারে না।। Odvut Scientists have reported tardigrades in hot springs, on top of the Himalayas (6,000 m; 20,000 ft, above sea level) to the deep sea (−4,000 m; −13,000 ft) and from the polar regions to the equator, under layers of solid ice, and in ocean sediments. Many species can be found in milder environments such as lakes, ponds, and meadows, while others can be found in stone walls and roofs. Tardigrades are most common in moist environments, but can stay active wherever they can retain at least some moisture. Tardigrades are considered to be able to survive even complete global mass extinction events due to astrophysical events, such as gamma-ray bursts, or large meteorite impacts.Some of them can withstand extremely cold temperatures down to 1 K (−458 °F; −272 °C) (close to absolute zero), while others can withstand extremely hot temperatures up to 420 K (300 °F; 150 °C) for several minutes, pressures about six times greater than those found in the deepest ocean trenches, ionizing radiation at doses hundreds of times higher than the lethal dose for a human, and the vacuum of outer space. They can go without food or water for more than 30 years, drying out to the point where they are 3% or less water, only to rehydrate, forage, and reproduce. Tardigrades that live in harsh conditions undergo an annual process of cyclomorphosis, allowing for survival in sub-zero temperatures. They are not considered extremophilic because they are not adapted to exploit these conditions, only to endure them. This means that their chances of dying increase the longer they are exposed to the extreme environments,whereas true extremophiles thrive in a physically or geochemically extreme environment that would harm most other organisms. Tardigrades are one of the few groups of species that are capable of suspending their metabolism (see cryptobiosis). Many species of tardigrade can survive in a dehydrated state up to five years, or in exceptional cases longer.Depending on the environment, they may enter this state via anhydrobiosis, cryobiosis, osmobiosis, or anoxybiosis. While in this state, their metabolism lowers to less than 0.01% of normal and their water content can drop to 1% of normal. Their ability to remain desiccated for such long periods was thought to be largely dependent on the high levels of the nonreducing sugar trehalose, which protects their membranes, although recent research suggests that tardigrades have a unique type of disordered protein that serves a similar purpose: It replaces water in the cells and adopts a glassy, vitrified state when the animals dry out. Their DNA is further protected from radiation by a protein called "dsup" (short for damage suppressor). In this cryptobiotic state, the tardigrade is known as a tun.

Tardigrade through a light microscope, 100X magnification. From Wikipedia: Tardigrades (phylum Tardigrada), known as "water bears", are microscopic, water-dwelling, segmented animals. Found in all corners of the globe, tardigrades are extremophiles, meaning that they are able to survive in extreme environments that would kill almost any other animal. Some can survive temperatures of -273°C, close to absolute zero, temperatures as high as 151 °C (303 °F), 1,000 times more radiation than other animals such as humans, nearly a decade without water, and even the vacuum of space. They do this by reversibly suspending their metabolism and going into a state of cryptobiosis. In this cryptobiotic state the tardigrade is known as a tun. Several species regularly survive in a dehydrated state for nearly ten years. Depending on the environment they may enter this state via anhydrobiosis, cryobiosis, osmobiosis or anoxybiosis. While in this state their metabolism lowers to less than 0.01% of normal and their water content can drop to 1% of normal.

Earlier, tennis balls were white. But later, they were changed to yellow because studies showed that yellow balls were easier to see on televisions. Now, tennis balls are fuzzy because the fuzz helps them slow down. When a tennis ball moves through air, every fibre of the fuzz acts like an obstacle for air. This increases the drag, thus slowing it down. Besides this, the fuzz also increases the spin. Imagine a ball spinning in clockwise direction. Now, above the ball, the direction of air is same as the direction of rotation. However, below the ball, it is opposite. This opposing force combined with the fuzz increase the drag below the ball. Hence, the pressure below becomes much higher than it is above. This pressure difference imparts a lift, thus increasing the spin.

Normally, water droplets or ice crystals in clouds scatter all colors of sunlight equally. Hence, our eyes perceive clouds as white. As a cloud gets bigger and thicker, water droplets in its upper part scatter most of the sunlight. Now, the lower part doesn’t receive enough light to get scattered to our eyes, making rainclouds appear dark when seen from the ground below.

Amazing Facts You Didn’t Know About Animals interesting and rare facts about animals that you’ve probably never heard about. Some of them will make you go Awww. Whether you're a nature lover or just curious by nature, this video is for you! We know the life cycle; an animal is born, grows up, becomes an adult, reproduces, ages, gets old and finally dies. This is a universal truth about animal life on earth. Aging is a natural process for all living beings. In biology, it called senescence. Birth slowly becomes death by way of aging (if not by accident, disease or falling prey) in a natural life process. Therefore, it is hard to believe that some animals are almost immortal. There are a few species of animals in which the process of aging is extremely slow. Their life span is much longer in comparison to that of a human being. This is termed as “negligible senescence”. Here the symptoms of aging are so faint that it seems like they can never die. Tortoise As children, all of us might have heard or read about the tortoise’s immortality. The life span of a tortoise is 150 to 250 years. A tortoise shell contrary to common belief actually has 60 different interconnected bones. Red Sea Urchin Sea urchins usually live in warm waters close to the coral reefs or on the rocky bottom. Their life spans up to 200 years. They never stop growing but don’t get old. Their mouth has five sharp teeth and they can drill a hole in a rock. Sea urchins originated roughly 450 million years ago. Rougheye Rockfish Rougheye rockfish are probably one of the longest living marine fish, living as long as 200 years. “Red Snapper”, which you can sometimes find on restaurant menus, are actually rockfish. They do not lay eggs but give birth to young ones. Rockfish have a bladder that adjusts to their buoyancy as per depth levels inside the sea. Carp Koi Carp Koi have a lifespan of over 200 years. Koi fish represent love and friendship in Japanese culture. As a gift, they are believed to bring good luck; so traditionally they are handed over from one generation to the next in Japanese families. Koi have no stomach, instead, they only have a gut. Bowhead Whale They are believed to live up to 200 years. The Bowhead whale can grow up to a length of 66 ft. and weigh as much as 100 tons. Bowhead whales were massively hunted for their meat and oil. A bowhead whale can blow air up to 20 feet in height and are strong enough to easily break a one-foot thick ice layer. Ocean Quahog World’s oldest ocean quahog was 507 years old before its death in 2006. They are able to live for centuries because of their very slow metabolism. This ocean quahog was named after Chinese dynasty “Ming”. Freshwater Pearl Mussel Freshwater pearl mussels possess negligible senescence. They have a life span of 210–250 years. Freshwater mussel species have the ability to create a pearl. Antarctic Sponge The Antarctic sponge has an extremely slow growth rate because of the very low temperature there; some of the oldest known specimens are as old as 1550 years. Sponges have been inhabiting earth for the last 600 million years. Turritopsis Dohrn jellyfish This jellyfish discovered in 1883 can truly be called immortal because of its unique regenerative powers which came to our knowledge only two decades back. Its cells can transform into different kinds of cells like a muscle cell can change into a sperm cell or even an egg cell or vice versa. Water Bear Water bears, also known as tardigrades or moss piglet have existed for 530 million years. They have some super powers which make them virtually immortal. They can stop all their metabolic activities completely by a process called cryptobiosis. Water bears do not grow by cell division. Their cells just expand to a bigger size. #facts #animals #animalfacts #amazingfacts

Tardigrades are water-dwelling, eight-legged, segmented micro-animals. They were first discovered by the German zoologist Johann August Ephraim Goeze in 1773. The name Tardigrada was given three years later by the Italian biologist Lazzaro Spallanzani. They have been found everywhere: from mountaintops to the deep sea and mud volcanoes; from tropical rain forests to the Antarctic. Tardigrades are one of the most resilient animals known. Individual species of tardigrades can survive extreme conditions that would be rapidly fatal to nearly all other known life forms, including complete global mass extinction events due to astrophysical events, such as supernovae, gamma-ray bursts, or large meteorite impacts. Some tardigrades can withstand temperatures down to 1 K while others can withstand 420 K for several minutes, pressures about six times greater than those found in the deepest ocean trenches, ionizing radiation at doses hundreds of times higher than the lethal dose for a human, a... http://www.wikividi.com ____________________________________ Shortcuts to chapters: 00:03:23: Description 00:04:27: Anatomy and morphology 00:07:25: Reproduction 00:08:46: Ecology and life history 00:09:45: Physiology 00:12:19: Taxonomy 00:15:27: Genomes and genome sequencing ____________________________________ Copyright WikiVidi.

"Engineering Application of Integrative Artificial Algal Crust Technology in Shifting Sand Stabilization" A promising project of Institute of Hydrobiology (CAS), the Inner Mongolia Academy of Forestry Science, der Wuhan High-tech Agriculture Group and the Gaolin Biotech Development Co., Ltd. of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. Location: Shapotou Scientific Station of the Chinese Academy of Sciences Visit in spring 2011. Cyanobacteria were grown in mass culture ans sprayed on the desert soil. Cyanobacteria grow like cob web filaments and excrete sugars. The sugars act like a glue and stick the sand particles together. A erosion resistanct crust of cyanobacteria and other organisms is formed. In additon many cyanobacteria strains are capable to fix nitrogen form the air by means of nitrogenase (natural fertilzer) and produce UV-screening pigments such as mycosporine-like amino acids and scytonemins as sun screens. When water supply is sufficient (as in the location in the movie) the crusts are replaced by higher plants in the course of time. If water supply does not allow the growth of higher plants cyanobacteria crusts may possibly stabilize the soil and (in combination with other measures) may help to confine desertification. Cyanobacteria are dessication tolerant. They can dessicate and stop their metabolism under water depletion. Upon rehydration (rain or dew) they immediately restart their metabolism and produce biomass which may support other organisms. This method is probably from general interest in order to reduce desertification or to recover eroded soil. There are many aspects to be determined:Techniques in order to spread the cyanobacteria. What amount of cells is necessary in order to form a stable crust (e.g. dessicated encapsulated cells by means of natural wind)? What is the best time point to inoculate the soil with the cells (determination of precipitation, humidity and mist in the course of a year)? Which strains are the best for which area etc. Links: http://english.ihb.cas.cn/rh/rps/200909/t20090923_40041.html http://www.jipb.net/pubsoft/content/2/3503/45-8-6.pdf http://www.springerlink.com/content/uqt2800m50775198/ http://en.cnki.com.cn/Article_en/CJFDTOTAL-SSWX200001001.htm http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0140196302002926 http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0140196306000814

Sea-Monkeys are a variant of brine shrimp or Artemia salina, originating in salt lakes and evaporation flats. They are members of the phylum Arthropoda The key ability of unhatched "Sea-Monkeys" to be packaged, shipped, and handled is that they enter cryptobiosis, a natural suspended animation. When released into the prepared aquarium they leave this state and emerge from their cysts. The genetic variant of brine shrimp, the Sea-Monkey, was given the term "instant life" to reflect the instant hatching seen when the cysts are added to the saltwater medium. To start the process, the "water purifier" package is added to water on the first day. This package has eggs as well as the salt. On the second day, the user adds the "instant life eggs" package, containing Epsom salts, borax and soda ash, in addition to eggs, yeast, and sometimes a blue or green dye. The dye enhances the experience by making the freshly hatched animals more visible. The Sea-Monkeys seen on the fifth day after adding the "eggs package" are derived from the eggs added with the "purifier" package. The food package is a mixture of Spirulina and dried yeast. The "boost" packages mainly contains salts, which induce increased sexual activity in artemia. In one day Sea-Monkeys double in size.

The fragment of crust was hydrated in dilute seawater of about 15-PPT salinity. In desert ecological systems, many microorganisms enter into a state of cryptobiosis when the soil completely dries out and can remain in this state for long periods of time. Hydration of the dried soil restores metabolism.

Christopher D. Impey, Distinguished Professor, Astronomy/Steward Observatory, The University of Arizona. Presented March 8, 2011. Our reconstruction of the chronology of events that led to the origin of the Earth and subsequent chemical evolution on our planet informs us that nothing unusual was required for the origin and development of terrestrial life, and that therefore life may be pervasive throughout the cosmos. Whether extraterrestrial life exists is so ancient and beguiling a question that humankind is actively seeking the answer in its explorations of the planetary systems in our solar system. It may one day transpire that we discover that genesis has occurred, independently, not once but twice in our solar system. At that point, we could safely infer that life is a fundamental feature of our universe ... along with dark matter, supernovae, and black holes. Cosmic Origins is the story of the universe but it's also our story. Hear about origin of space and time, mass and energy, the atoms in our bodies, the compact objects where matter can end up, and the planets and moons where life may flourish. Modern cosmology includes insights and triumphs, but mysteries remain. Join the six speakers who will explore cosmology's historical and cultural backdrop to explain the discoveries that speak of our cosmic origins. http://cos.arizona.edu/cosmic

Presented by Dr. Jayne Belnap at the 2016 Ecological Integration Symposium. Jayne Belnap is a research ecologist with the U.S. Geological Service. Her work focuses on dryland and rangeland ecosystems, with a focus on how these lands can be managed sustainably while still used for grazing, recreation, and energy/mineral development and exploration. She was recognized by the Ecological Society of America as one of the most outstanding ecologists in the U.S. (2008), received the award for outstanding women in science award from the U.S. Department of the Interior (2010), and was elected a fellow of the Ecological Society of America (2015). Abstract: Plant cover is sparse in dryland regions, and the dominant living cover is often biological soil crusts (biocrusts). These thin, soil surface communities consist of photosynthetic cyanobacteria, lichens and mosses, as well as fungi, heterotrophic bacteria and soil microfauna and together, control many of the ecosystem processes in these settings. The concept of critical zones, defined as the “heterogeneous, near surface environment in which complex interactions involving rock, soil, water, air, and living organisms regulate the natural habitat and determine the availability of life-sustaining resources” is now commonly used. Most ecosystems are dominated by tall vascular plants with roots ramifying throughout deep soils and thus the critical zone has been defined in meters. Conversely, drylands have sparse vascular vegetation, shallow soils, and large amounts of rock cover and thus here, the critical zone may be better characterized as the top centimeter of soil covered by biocrusts. Soil surface disturbance and droughts have been dramatically increasing in these regions, profoundly altering the composition of biocrusts and thus the roles they play in dryland ecosystems.

The film begins with film reels showing the preparation and detonation of a nuclear bomb at Bikini Atoll. A huge figure with jagged spikes rises from the water when the bomb is detonated. In 1999, scientists Ishiro Serizawa and Vivienne Graham (Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins) are called to a quarry in the Philippines where a colossal skeleton and two egg-shaped pods have been discovered. Shortly after realizing one of the pods has hatched, the Janjira Nuclear Plant near Tokyo, Japan suffers an explosion and radiation leak. Plant supervisor Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston) loses his wife (Juliette Binoche) in the accident. The event, attributed to an earthquake, results in the evacuation and quarantine of the Janjira area. Fifteen years later, Joe's son Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) is an explosive ordinance disposal officer in the United States Navy, living in San Francisco with wife Elle (Elizabeth Olsen) and son Sam (Carson Bolde). When Joe is arrested for trespassing in the quarantined area, Ford travels to Japan to assist him. Joe is still haunted by his wife's death and is obsessed with uncovering the true cause of the catastrophe. He convinces his son to accompany him to Janjira, where they discover no signs of radiation. They are arrested and taken to a secret facility built within the power plant's ruins. The facility is built around a massive chrysalis (similar to the one seen in the Philippines) that is being studied by Serizawa and Graham. The chrysalis hatches and unleashes a colossal winged creature, which devastates the facility and flies off. Joe is fatally wounded in the chaos and dies. Serizawa, Graham, and Ford joins a US Navy team to track the monster, using the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga as a base of operations. Aboard the Saratoga, Ford is informed by Serizawa and his team that the creature he saw at Janjira was a MUTO (or Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism), an ancient creature from a much earlier time which feeds off radiation and radioactive material. As the earth's radiation subsided it moved underground and put itself in a cryptobiotic state. It in turn is being hunted by a much larger animal that was awoken during a deep sea expedition in 1954. Its existence has been continually covered up following numerous failures to kill it with nuclear weapons. Ford reveals that his father had tracked a form of echolocation from the Janjira area, which leads the team to believe the MUTO was communicating with something else. A U.S. Army Special Forces team in Hawaii finds the wreck of a Russian nuclear submarine that has reported an attack and finds the MUTO feeding on its reactor. The military attacks the MUTO and a battle ensues at Honolulu International Airport. The larger creature, named "Godzilla", arrives and fights the MUTO, which flees by air. The second MUTO pod, which was brought from the Philippines to the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository, hatches and a larger, female MUTO devastates Las Vegas before heading west. Serizawa believes the two creatures will meet to breed. The military plans to kill all three monsters with their most powerful nuclear weapon. Because the MUTOs can emit powerful EMP blasts, they cannot use bombers or missiles, so they transport by land a bomb with a mechanical detonator. The MUTOs, however, steal the warhead and construct a nest around it in the middle of downtown San Francisco, threatening the lives of millions. Godzilla arrives in San Francisco to confront the monsters. While the MUTOs are distracted with Godzilla, Ford and a team of soldiers enter the nest and try to disarm the warhead. They discover it is badly damaged and cannot be disarmed, so they plan to take it out to sea and let it detonate. While Godzilla is able to fight either MUTO individually with ease, their combined force begins to overwhelm him. Ford uses a fuel truck to incinerate the eggs, distracting the female MUTO from the fight and leaving just the male to fight Godzilla. Godzilla then kills the male MUTO by biting it and then slamming it into a skyscraper with his tail. Godzilla and Ford share a stare before the former is engulfed by the falling skyscraper as Ford runs to the docks. The enraged mother MUTO slaughters the soldiers, but Ford manages to take the bomb out to sea with the female MUTO in pursuit. Just when she is about to destroy the boat, Godzilla incidentally rescues Ford and kills the last MUTO by holding her jaws open, and firing his atomic breath down her throat (decapitating her in the process). Ford blacks out while he is extracted by an Army helicopter, while Godzilla walks back to shore where it collapses and seemingly dies. In the aftermath, Ford is reunited with his wife and son. Godzilla, thought dead, awakens and returns to the ocean, hailed as the heroic "King of Monsters" by the media.
