I think extremophiles are very interesting organisms. These are organisms that tolerate or require extreme ranges of variability of environmental factors to live. In most cases, extremophiles are unicellular organisms belonging to the Archaea domain, but other groups are also among them.

Some extremophiles are specialized, they like acidic or alkaline environments, frosts or heat, but there are also organisms that get used to various kinds of variability. These are the so-called polyextremophiles.

An example of extremophiles are tardigrades:

Video of the little fellow. I once read that they can even temporarily survive in the vacuum of space.

Elephant in the room: visitor crashes through kitchen wall in Thailand​

Ratchadawan Puengprasoppon was awoken in the early hours of Saturday morning by crashing and banging. When she went to find out what had happened, she discovered an elephant’s head poking through her kitchen wall beside the drying rack.

The male elephant, named Boonchuay, appeared to be looking for something to eat. His trunk rummaged through the kitchen drawers, knocking pans and cooking paraphernalia to the floor. He chewed on a plastic bag as Ratchadawan, unsure what to do, filmed the episode on her phone.

It’s not the first time Boonchuay, who lives in Thailand’s Kaeng Krachan national park, has visited Chalermkiatpattana village. “They come to visit quite often. They always come when there is the local market because they can smell food,” said Itthipon Thaimonkol, the park’s superintendent.
