p.183, about two-thirds of the way down: "The tardigrade expels all its water and breaks down its cell fats into a sugar called trelahose, ...".

This should, of course, be "trehalose".

Good spot Dr Pedant, you appear to be absolutely right!

What is trehalose, apart from being a sugar, and what does it enable the tardigrade to do?

I have in my possession one bonafide* beautiful blue tardigrade, only $9 at your local** Doctor Who convention!

Of course, I did then. I have to say, I really can't see what prompts such a plea, apart from a desire to deprive us chaps.

It's really just a joke I have with my friends, e.g., every time I go on Skype after having showered for the day. Look at my face, judge me how you will. :)
