Hello there!

I am a living animal.
You may not see me with your eyes,
But though I'm very, very small,
I'm a tough nut for my size.

I do not fear the arid desert,
Nor the frigid cold and snow.
I can rest comfortably in the mountains high
Or in the ocean far below.

You may find me in the cold of space
Or by a pristine, little lake.
I may have gone thirsty for 100 years,
So give me a drink, for goodness sake!

If you find me, please say "hello,"
And a new friend you can make,
For you'll find I'm not as nasty
As my more ferocious namesake.

It's been a pleasure meeting you
And telling you about me.
Now that you have all the clues,
Please tell me, what can I be?





What Next?

Space huh? Despite being able to survive low or high pressure, I doubt you can actually "find" one up in space, as the teaser suggests.

Infromative, but hard. But it's still a nice teaser.

Okay, I seriously doubt that anyone actually got this one right, but it was a well written riddle.

Thank you to everyone so far who has complimented my teaser. I know it's difficult, I like to learn new things everyday, so I make my teasers to reflect that fact. I hope you can still enjoy it even though it's hard!! I don't think it would be any fun if I knew all the answers all the time, would it? Thanks again all, you guys make Braingle a lot of fun!!

or a yellow banana slug

Wow. I was reading the answer, and I had no idea what it was. Well written, but impossible. And what does that have to do with a cookie?
