Tardigrades (water bears) are amazingly tough. Can survive temperatures of -458 F to +300 F, go 30 years without food/water, have lived at the top of the Himalayas, bottom of ocean, in outer space, and survived all 5 major extinction events on earth.

If you can’t keep these alive as pets you’re in trouble.
