SUMMARY
Top 3 Most Amazing Creatures:
– The immortal jellyfish begins its life as a tiny free-swimming blob called a planula, which grows into a colony of polyps and then develops into a jellyfish. If it’s attacked, is exposed to environmental stress, or simply becomes sick or old, it can revert to the polyp stage, forming a new polyp colony, which makes it immortal.
– Naked mole-rats can live ten times as long as a mouse. Recent studies prove they can survive without oxygen!
– Tardigrade. These little, near-microscopic animals are considered nature’s toughest creatures as it is almost impossible to kill them. With eight legs and hands with claws, they can live basically anywhere sucking algae juice, lichens and moss.
