We’re Goin’ on a (Water) Bear Hunt

We’re goin’ on a water  bear hunt

(We’re goin’ on a water bear hunt)

We’re going to catch a big one,

(We’re going to catch a big one,) I’m not scared

(I’m not scared)

What a beautiful day!

(What a beautiful day!)

Uh-uh!

The wheel animalcule

Twin buzz sawed filter feeder

Oh no!

We’ve got to hunt some more!

Uh-uh!

A Diatom!

A glass animalcule

A microscopic spaceship glider

Oh no!

We’ve got to hunt some more!

Uh-uh!

A Paramecium!

A slipper animalcule

An invisible darter

Oh no!

We’ve got to hunt some more!

 

Uh-uh!

A Hydra!

The immortal and ageless animalcule

A tiny tentacled stinger

Oh no!

We’ve got to hunt some more!

 

Uh-uh!

WHAT’S THAT!

Short, plump, and fat

Four pairs of legs with sharp sharp claws

Cryptobiotic, space surviver, and the most resilient animal of all

IT’S A WATER BEAR!
