This is a tribute to the toughest animal on Earth, the Tardigrades. I’ve found most 3D renditions of this lovely critter oddly solid and eyeless, so I’ve decided to present mine with a translucent body, including all the organs based on anatomical references. The animation showcases the Cryptobiosis superpower of the little guy, which it can withstand low oxygen, high/low temperature, dehydration, high salinity/pressure, hard vacuum, and radiation.
