This week we have a submission from a fellow tardigrade hunter, Sandra McClure. These tardigrades were found in lichen gathered in Kenai, Alaska! Looks like they have some happy water bears up in the great white north (except for the dead one - lower left). Clearly a eutardigrade species, but hard to tell much more without further study. Sandra is sending us some samples and we'll try to get these guys ID for you. Thanks Sandra!
If you've got any pictures from your own (water) bear hunt we'd love to feature them on our site. Instructions for submission here.
