Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sample of Phylum Tardigrada. Great activity for Life Science viewed under light microscope. Always popular and engaging for students to see micro water bears living as invertebrate animals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love them!! I needed water bears for a biology lab and we got them and were able to see them under a microscope easily, they came in great condition and they are easy to find. They are also soooo adorable, we named the first bear we found Herb and I printed out a picture of him and my girlfriend got me a stuffed animal. Truly both amazing and adorable creatures, incredibly happy with my purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of healthy specimens, still alive several weeks later The two vials of Tardigrades arrived in good shape. There were dozens of living specimens in each of the cultures, and my 6th grade students enjoyed looking at them under the microscope. We are trying to keep them alive in our classroom by adding algae/moss from a pond to the cultures, and so far it's working. They have been producing eggs inside exoskeletons. We have now noticed young Tardigrades, born from the eggs. There are also lots of other types of microbes growing in the cultures along with the Tardigrades because of the added algae.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tardigrades arrived in excellent condition Does anyone know the specific species or genus of these lab tardigrades? So far I haven't been able to find anything that specific in the care and handling materials.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Couldn't find the little buggers Since they have incredible staying power I haven't given up. I'v been out of country for the last two weeks so will fire up the microscope at look again. I'm not an educator just interested in microscopic life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The students loved these! The only problem we had was students who tried to suck water from the top of the culture. The water bears are only on the bottom of the culture. There were plenty of them, and they are easy to see with dissecting microscopes. They move slowly so there is no need for a slowing agent such as Protoslow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A check on my Bucket List I had no scientific reason for ordering these. I have seen so many articles and photos of them. I simply wanted to see them live for my own self edification. It was great! Fascinating little Beastie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used at NIH to teach 150 children grade1-6 about light microscopy Used these as part of a Take Your Child to Work Day Event and everyone was thrilled - these are common in the environment but can't ever seem to find them when I need them. They looked great, swam a lot and came at a high population count. They will mostly be grabbing onto flotsam vs. swimming free (unless maybe if you shook them up) but knowing that makes them easy to find.
