Formula 1 and NASCAR Look Out, It’s Time for Racing Tardigrades

 |  |  |  |  |  December 23, 2020


I’ve watched lots of car races over the years. I’ve driven on race tracks and dragstrips, and have even been in a stock car at about 170 mph. But you know what I haven’t experienced yet? Tardigrade racing. These tiny creatures are known for their resiliency, so they’re unlikely to get injured in a crash, making them perfect for high-speed action.

These pull-back tardigrades come in a set of four so you can race up to three of your friends to see who has the fastest time in a drag race. I’m going with the bright blue one, mostly because it looks like Swedish Racing Green to me. Now, as far as I know, tardigrades are so tiny that you need a microscope to see them, so the guys at Archie McPhee decided to scale theirs up to 2-3/4″ long so they’re visible to the naked eye. Hey, put some clothes on that eyeball!

The full set goes for just $14.95 and would be lots of fun to race against some babies, possums, or cockroaches. Place your bets now!
