Natural Cryogenic worm frozen for 42000 years beats previous 30 year cryogenic water bear record

In 2014, scientists succeeded in bringing a frozen animal (Tardigrades are also known as ‘water bears’ or ‘moss piglets’ ) back to life after 30 years.

Nemotode worms were brought back to life and were moving and eating after being frozen for 42,000 years.

The Pleistocene nematodes have some adaptive mechanisms that may be of scientific and practical importance for the related fields of science, such as cryomedicine, cryobiology, and astrobiology.
