So today’s indestructible creature is the Arctic Springtail, springtails are mostly blind six-legged mini beasts that live in soil and leaf litter all over the world, in fact a dinner table sized patch of soil is likely to have , springtails living in it, what the hell……………. and when it warms up they soak up water and return to their normal size.

Now they mostly crawl around but if they feel threatened they can flick a switch under their bodies and ping themselves into the air to get away………….
