Bdeloid rotifer is known for its ability to withstand adverse conditions.

A multicellular microorganism has come back to life after being frozen for 24,000 years in Siberia. This is indicated by research in which scientists discovered the animal known as a bdeloid rotifer in the Alayeza River, in the Russian Arctic.

Once the ice thawed, it was able to reproduce asexually, even after spending thousands of years in a latency state known as cryptobiosis.

Previous research has already shown that they can live frozen for up to ten years. The new study, published this week in Current Biology, suggests they can live for thousands of years or even indefinitely.
